I am a huge fan of baking homemade goods, especially pies. When I saw the McCormick Apple Pie Spice, I figured I would give it a try. Instead of adding all the spices individually, you just add one scoop of this! It is very convenient, but I feel the cloves in it are way too intense. The flavor stands out more than any of the other spices in it. I feel the mix needs more cinnamon, and less cloves and nutmeg! I like the idea, but the mix of the spices just wasn't good old fashioned apple pie.
