Whatever opinion you have of Germans and of Germany, when it comes to cultural customs, chances are you will agree with this: they sure know how to put on a mid-afternoon snack. When the children come home from school, and folks who are at leisure around 4 pm know, Coffee Time is probably the best time of day.
Not content to settle for a microwave bastardized fajita pita or pizza eggroll, Coffee Time features a *real* snack, made with love and the best ingredients -- a warm drink, and a hearty slice of freshly-baked cake or pie.
And that brings us to this: our Apple Pie Spice. The trinity of baking spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves, with the finest sugar. Use this luscious mix to flavor store-bought apple pie filling, or to make your own spiced apples from scratch. And, if you're going to serve it at Coffee Time, call it pfeltorte, and serve it with a dollop of fresh whipped cream, or Schlagsahne.
Tired of apple pie? Try the dessert flavors of Apple Pie Spice with pears, peaches, cobblers, apricot crumble, or other sweet, fruity recipes. Oh! And Apple Pie Spice is a perfect addition to cinnamon rolls [which are another good treat to have for your next late-afternoon Coffee Time].
Ingredients: Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, sugar
