Making your own apple pie spice mix takes a minute and keeps for months. A blend of spices with cozy fall flavors, it's easily customizable to suit your palate. Use it for all things apple, from pie to spice cakes, muffins, pancakes and apple scones. It also works with sweet potatoes and sweet spiced recipes. 

  • Total Time: 3 minutes
  • Yield: 1/2 cup


  • 6 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 4 teaspoons ground nutmeg
  • 4 teaspoons ground allspice


  1. Mix the ingredients in a small bowl until no streaks remain. It might take a bit until the cinnamon fully integrates.
  2. Transfer to an airtight glass container like a small mason jar, label it and store it in the pantry, cupboard or other cool, dry, dark place. It keeps for 6 months or more.
  3. Use it for your favorite apple recipes.


  • Use an airtight container: mason jars, small spice jars, or containers with tight-sealing lids work well. Making sure there is minimal air inside the container prevents moisture and air from degrading the spices.
  • Label: write the date you made the spice mix. This helps you keep track of its freshness.
  • Store in a cool, dark place: keep the spice mix in a cool, dry, and dark place, away from direct sunlight, heat, and moisture. A pantry, spice cabinet or cupboard is an ideal location.
  • Avoid refrigeration: keeping them in the fridge is not recommended for spice mixes as it can introduce moisture and cause clumping. Spices should remain dry.
  • Check for freshness: spice blends can lose their potency over time. While they might not be spoiled, they may be less flavorful. Consider making a fresh batch if you've stored the mix for over a year. Smell the spices before using them.
