Easy apple pie spice recipe
I’m really excited about this spice because it’s going to take some steps out of measuring spices when I have the kitchen strewn with all my baking supplies.
Instead of measuring cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice individually, I’ll be adding a teaspoon or two of this ready made mix. Fabulous, huh?
You may have seen Apple Spice at the grocery store. They’re usually in itty-bitty jars OR maybe your store doesn’t carry it, which was my case and prompted me to make my own!
Great gift idea!
This is a great spice to give as a housewarming gift during the holidays. Tuck a jar in a small basket with some apple scones and a recipe!
Can’t wait to start using this Apple Spice Mix and start baking!
