Apple Pie Spice Recipe FAQs

What is the difference between apple pie spice and pumpkin pie spice?

While both of these spice blends are full of flavor and a lot of the same ingredients they do vary. Apple pie spice will contain cardamom, and pumpkin pie spice contains ground cloves. Those two spices being the only difference, they’ll both contain cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice just in different quantities.

Tips for Making, Eating, & Storing

Tips

Tips for preparing this tasty spice blend:

  • Use a funnel – Don’t let any of those precious spice particles escape your container, a funnel is a good way to keep your space clean.
  • Choosing a container – Opt for a larger container rather than a smaller one.

Storing

Store our Apple Pie Spice blend the same way you would store your other kitchen spices. Sealed tightly in an airtight container in a cool dark place out of direct sunlight. This will ensure your spice blend stays fresh and fragrant for as long as possible.
