I had apples for a pie today but no apple pie spice. I followed the recipe and...WOW...the aroma...apples & Autumn in a jar! I love this spice and will share it in my holiday food gift baskets I make! Thank you.-31 Aug 2008


My favorite spice company discontinued their apple pie spice mix, and I was at a loss. Lo and behold, this spice mix is even better, fresher, and more flavorful! This is so good, I included it in the goodie baskets my husband and I gave this holiday season. The recipients loved it! One comment was "Now my pies taste like a bakery pie!" Thank you, RobertaJ!-22 Jul 2008

Here are RecipeLion we are big fans of making delicious recipes using ingredients you already have on hand. And a can of apple pie filling is a perfect example of a simple ingredient that can be transformed into many different amazing recipes!

These recipes using apple pie filling are all totally delicious and perfect for serving to your family. You'll find that a lot of the desserts use the classic caramel apple flavor, and you'll find several that might surprise you! For example, have you ever had apple pie ice cream? It sounds amazing, right? Well, just keep scrolling to get the recipe!

You will probably enjoy these tasty desserts mostly during the fall and winter, but we definitely think they are great for all seasons. After all, who doesn't have a can of apple pie filling hanging out in their pantry from last Thanksgiving pretty much all year long? This collection of recipes is a great excuse to actually use it up. We don't think that anyone will be complaining about enjoying a Caramel Apple Dump Cake recipe that calls for two sticks of butter (yes, two) in the middle of July.

So, enjoy this collection of recipes! And be sure to leave us a comment below if you try one of them or if you have a favorite way to use up canned apple pie filling that you'd like to share.

Chocolate Chip Apple Pie Cheesecake Parfaits

Check out this unique recipe using apple pie filling! This is such a creative idea. We love the idea of layering cinnamon-spiced apple pie filling with sweet, fluffy cream cheese and crumbly graham crackers. Plus the idea of adding chocolate chips on top is a stroke of genius! This delightful dessert is perfect for any season, which is good because we think you and your family will want to make it again and again.

You can purchase apple pie spice in the store, but ounce for ounce, it’s pricier than the same quantity of a single spice. And while it initially costs a bit more to buy five jars of individual spices, when you get it all blended and turned into your own Apple Pie Spice, you’ll have five bottles’ worth of of it. Now that’s saving some money!

This spice blend is cheaper to make from home and you can also customize your spice blend exactly how you like it. Spice blends vary from brand to brand, but generally all include cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg. Often blends will include cardamom and ground cloves. My recipe blend has all five spices and we love it!

Feel free to tweak and adjust your spice blend to meet your personal preferences.

Apple Pie Spice Recipe

Nothing says “Fall is in the air” more than warm apple pie, apple crisp, apple sauce, anything apple. Apples are abundant this time of year and so it is important to have the right spices on hand to whip up these fantastic creations. While we were making the Apple Pie Filling, I found myself without Apple Pie Spice in the pantry. Making your own spice blends is very easy, takes only minutes and can save you money too!

How could I have run out and not made a mental note to pick up more at the store? That was disappointing.

Then, I got an idea. I bet I have everything I need to make it myself! Sure enough!

It only requires FOUR ingredients, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and ground ginger – ALL things I use quite frequently.

I realized by making this and having it on hand, I would save quite a bit of money in the end, not to mention the time it would take to drive to the store and back just to get it. Plus, all I had to do was mix the ingredients together, use what I needed and store the rest. It is just that easy and took me maybe ten minutes from start to finish.

I have found apple pie spice is also fantastic lightly sprinkled on ice cream. It can be used when baking a sweet bread, to give the sense that you are actually eating apple pie. I’ve even put a tiny pinch in my morning coffee. Instead of using processed creamer, sprinkle some of this along with a small amount of sugar-in-the raw and some cream with your favorite Fall coffee blend. Mmmm, you will be transported into apple pie goodness, first thing in the morning.

Five-Spice Apple Pie

Mix first 3 ingredients in large bowl. Add shortening cut in using pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal with a few pea-size pieces. Mix in enough ice water by tablespoonfuls to form moist clumps. Gather dough. Divide into 2 pieces, 1 slightly larger than the other. Flatten each into disk. Wrap each disk in plastic chill at least 1 hour. DO AHEAD Can be made 1 day ahead. Keep refrigerated. Let dough soften slightly at room temperature before rolling out.


Step 2

Toss apples and lemon juice in large bowl. Melt butter in heavy large pot over medium heat. Add apples and brown sugar cook until apples are just tender, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes. Using slotted spoon, return apples to same bowl. Boil juices in pot until thick, about 15 minutes. Pour juices over apples cool completely. Mix in flour and five-spice powder.

Step 3

Position rack in lowest third of oven preheat to 375°F. Place baking sheet on rack. Roll out larger dough disk on floured surface to 12-inch round. Transfer to 9-inch glass pie dish trim overhang to 1 inch, if necessary. Spoon filling into crust. Roll out smaller dough disk to 10-inch round. Drape over filling. Press top and bottom edges of dough together crimp decoratively. Cut small hole in center of crust. Brush crust with cream. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon sugar.

Step 4

Place pie on baking sheet in oven bake until crust is golden brown and filling bubbles thickly, about 1 hour 5 minutes. Transfer pie to rack and cool. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature.


I&rsquom pretty much a self-professed spice hoarder, so Penzey&rsquos makes almost as happy as Nordstrom does. Seriously, it&rsquos pretty close.

So any time I stumble across a recipe that calls for a special spice blend, my first thought is if I have what I need to make it myself.

The answer to that is almost always yes. From pumpkin pie spice and chai spice blend to homemade taco seasoning, I have made plenty of my own spice blends over the years.

As soon as the air turns crisp and the leaves start to turn, I get into serious fall baking mode and often encounter recipes that call for &ldquoapple pie spice.&rdquo

But what really is apple pie spice?

Most of these blends include cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice and cardamom. So that&rsquos what I used here!

By making your own spice blends, you can tweak the amounts and customize the blend to meet your taste.

Love cardamom? Add a little more in. I promise &ndash you really can&rsquot mess it up!

What do you use Apple Pie Spice for?

This is a great addition to any apple-based recipe, think of it similarly to pumpkin pie spice. Just as you add pumpkin spice to many pumpkin-based recipes, you can add apple spice to the apple-based recipes.

One of our favorites to add this into is this Apple Crisp, you can use apple pie spice right along with the cinnamon or in place of it too.

Apple Pie Spice

During the fall season, particularly around Thanksgiving and Christmas time, you’ll find a lot of recipes that call for apple pie spice. While it’s usually okay to substitute ground cinnamon, the primary ingredient of apple pie spice, it’s simple enough to make your own homemade version.

My homemade apple pie spice substitute is perfect in a pinch and allows you to customize the level of spices to suit your personal preferences.
