Apple Pie Spice is simply a combination of spices that you probably already have in your cabinet! Mix up a batch of your own to make a delicious homemade apple pie or turnovers.

Is there a difference between Apple Pie Spice and Pumpkin Pie Spice?

The answer is yes! But barely. While both spice blends include cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger, pumpkin spice also includes ground cloves, and traditionally apple spice does not. Apple spice also sometimes contains cardamom while pumpkin spice does not. But if you ask me, as long as you enjoy all of the flavors you can use the same spice mix for either!

For a traditional flavor for your pumpkin pie or pumpkin roll cake, try my homemade Pumpkin Pie spice mix.

How to Use

Your homemade apple pie spice can of course be used to make the best apple pie, but it can also be added to muffins, scones, or cookie dough!
