Homemade Apple Pie Spice Mix

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.

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.

Total Time 6 minutes


  • 1/2 cup ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons all spice
  • 4 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom


  • 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.

  1. I was very excited to try your Apple Pie spice mix. However, when I looked at your recipe for your apple pie, I noticed that you do not even use your own spice mix in your own apple pie recipe. Why is this? Your apple pie recipe only calls for cinnamon and nutmeg. I am confused, as I only put cinnamon and nutmeg in my apple pies.
