This post has been a long time coming and I apologize for the delay. I’ve been meaning to post this since my amazingly simple and crazy delicious Apple Pie Bites have been the most popular recipe on the blog for over a year now. So many people have asked, “What is apple pie spice?“.
Well, it’s actually quite simple to make. I did a lot of research online and saw that it always included allspice, nutmeg and cinnamon. Sometimes ground ginger was added, and a lot of times cardamom was added. I read the ingredients on the back of my apple pie spice container and cardamom was not mentioned in the ingredient list. I still wanted to buy a bottle of cardamom just to see if it made it taste any better. Cardamom was almost $15 for a small bottle!
Never mind. Besides, I’ve never used it in any recipes (as of yet), anyway!
So I started playing around with the ingredients until I got it to taste pretty much exactly like my purchased bottle of apple pie spice… no cardamom needed!
So, if you’re making these Easy Apple Pie Bites or any recipe that calls for apple pie spice, here’s your easy recipe!
- 1-1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
- 1-1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon allspice
- Place ingredients in a small bowl and stir well to combine. Store in a small airtight container.
