Forget expensive store-bought spice mixes that are full if fillers and try this Homemade Apple Pie Spice Mix – it’s the quintessential flavors of Fall!
Apple Pie Spice Mix is one of those things that is great to have on hand for seasoning all kinds of delicious goodies. I love baking with fresh apples and also applesauce, and this is the perfect accompaniment for that tasty apple flavor. But, let’s face it, it’s waaay overpriced at the grocery store! You can buy good quality spices and make your own mix in just a few minutes.
Before we get to the recipe, let me share with you a few of my favorite apple treats (click on an image to go to each recipe):
Ok, now back to the Apple Pie Spice Mix!
This recipe makes about 3/4 of a cup. I like to take 1/2 cup and package it into a 4oz mason jar, add a ribbon and pretty gift tag and give it as a gift with some fresh apples and one of my recipe cards. The rest fits nicely into a salt/pepper size shaker jar for my own use.
- Combine the spices and very gently whisk them together.
- Use a funnel to transfer the mixture into a small mason jar.
Store in a sealed container for best freshness. Small canning jars work great.
This also makes a wonderful gift - add a pretty ribbon and package it up with some fresh apples for a sweet little semi-homemade gift.
