Why spend money on pre-packaged apple pie spice when you already have everything you need to make your own at home? This warm and comforting fall spice combination can be used in a variety of baked goods, including pies, crisps, and more.

A few days ago, in preparation for making my recipe for baked apples, I prepared a large amount of this apple pie spice.

When I was done, I questioned whether or not I had made the right decision because I had produced more than I needed on purpose with the idea that it would be useful to have about all through the fall.

I was…suffering from a significant amount of apple pie spice. Would I ever get around to using it?

It turned out that I had no reason to be concerned, as this is great in a wide variety of dishes and baked goods. You can certainly put it in pies, but you can also put it in crisps, coffee, oatmeal, and other things.

Even as a snack, I enjoy sprinkling it on apple slices for a tasty treat. This apple pie spice is an essential ingredient to have in your cupboard if you want to replicate the comforting flavors of fall that I enjoy so much.

It might sound sophisticated to make your own, but don’t worry; it’s quite easy to put together. If I had to guess, I’d think that you already have all of the necessary ingredients stored away in your cupboard! You will simply need the following four ground spices:

Spices such as cardamom, nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon.
Because nutmeg and cardamom have more prominent tastes, I use a smaller amount of ground nutmeg and cardamom and more ground cinnamon in my cooking.

To achieve the desired level of depth in your apple spice mix, you only need a small amount.

How to Use the Spices in Apple Pie

After combining the ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground ginger, and cardamom, store the spice mixture in an airtight container until it is time to use it.

Even while it won’t spoil, the effectiveness of the ground spices will decrease over time. Because of this, I strongly advise utilizing all of the spice mixes in a single cooking season before replacing them.

To our good fortune, achieving that won’t be too challenging. It can be used for an incredible variety of uses. The following are some of my personal favorites:

  • In baked foods. Imagine baked goods such as pies, crisps, crumbles, cakes, and muffins, among others. You can use it in any dish that calls for apple pie spice, or you can substitute an equal amount of this spice blend for the spices that are called for in a recipe.
  • In oatmeal or overnight oats, whichever you want. It would also taste wonderful in the homemade granola that I make.
  • In hot liquids. Add a little to your morning coffee or some warm apple cider and stir it up.
  • In the form of either pancakes or French toast. I like it in these pumpkin pancakes, this classic French toast, and this French toast bake. All three of these dishes feature French toast.
  • On apples. It makes for a delicious and nutritious snack when sprinkled over slices of fresh apple.
