Variations

Whole spices

This apple pie spices uses only ground spices for their practicality. However, nothing prevents you from doing it with whole spices to get a fresher and more intense flavor.

For this recipe, I used several spices. On the other hand, you can use less and still get an excellent mixture.

The only necessary spices are cinnamon and nutmeg.

More spices

You can also add other less traditional spices if you wish. For example, you can add a little star anise or even a little coriander.

However, this blend has far too much potential to simply limit its use exclusively to pies!

This spice blend is an incredible ingredient not only for apple recipes, but also for various other types of recipes such as:
