American Masala : Apple Pie Spice & Pumpkin Spice


Apple Pie Spice

Around this time of the year, two spice mixes dominate American grocery stores. Apple Spice and Pumpkin Spice. Just as the recipe of spice mix changes from family to family, household to household, shop to shop in India, these two American spice mixes also vary. 

I used only three spices to make an Apple Pie Spice and additional one ingredient to make a pumpkin spice. Bakers are known to add clove powder, cardamom powder  based on their individual preference.
