Apple Pie Spice isn’t just for apple pie. I actually use it in multiple recipes/items, especially the oatmeal I make in the morning. So I was thrilled to find this because I couldn’t actually find apple pie spice in any of the local stores! They had it in South Carolina…but apparently not in Washington? Along with the recipe, I’ve included a list of ways to use apple pie spice…it’s for more than apple pie!

This recipe isn’t my own creation; classic Apple Pie Spice is apple pie spice. There’s only so many ways you can make it. So thanks to “The Greenbacks Gal” for the first version -and- “Home in the Finger Lakes” & “Table for Two” for some alternate versions.
