If you have never made your own apple pie spice, you’re missing out. This stuff rocks and it’s great for so much more than just apple pie.
I don’t bake a lot of apple pies. I never have. But on the rare occasion that I do make one these days, I like to make my own apple pie spice to go in it.
How To Make Apple Pie Spice
The truth is, this is a very simple mix to make. There’s no added sugar and the flavor and aroma of the pie as it’s baking lets you know the balance of spices is just right.
I know some people like ginger in this type of spice mix, but I’m not a fan of that. So if that’s your preference, you can add about an 1/8 to 1/4 tsp. to the mix. But I always feel like that makes it more of a pumpkin pie spice, though not completely. It’s totally up to you!
