Ok, so I love pumpkin recipes as much as the next person but seriously, it’s far too early for it. That’s personal opinion though. I mean, this is how I think of the Fall baking season. September: apples, October: pumpkin, November: cranberry & all things Thanksgiving, December: cookies and all things Christmas. I don’t like when things are rushed. The whole pumpkin spice lattes being released “early” by Starbucks was slight overkill because it’s still in the 90s here. Yes, I understand some people live in areas where it’s cooler but it’s not even near October! Can’t we hold off and savor each month? By the time pumpkin time really rolls around, we’ll all be sick of it and want to move onto something else. It’s just like when stores push Christmas in August. Pushing pumpkin in September is a no-no for me. Sorry, but I won’t be posting pumpkin recipes til October (but I’ve got some really good stuff coming – I promise), so we’ll get started on apple recipes, how’s that?

My apple recipes this week and next week require the use of apple pie spice. Sure, it’s easy to go to the store to buy a teeny tiny jar of it for $5 but I guarantee that you already have all the supplies in your pantry to make your own! I made my own pumpkin pie spice last year and it lasted me all Fall and into this year. Definitely saves a bunch of money and trips to the store since you’re making it in a big batch. Give it a try and I promise you’ll be making the switch to apple recipes this month instead of pumpkin :)

You could use this spice in a bunch of apple recipes.
