I have a question about the recipe "Truly Scrumptious Apple Pie" from mrslarkin. Cinnamon gives me migraines. Is there something I can substitute for it, or am I better off just leaving it out?

I think a little nutmeg or allspice would be nice. I would use 1/4 the amount because they are pungent and you are changing the flavor. Leaving it out will work as well, but I would increase or
add vanilla for a depth of flavor.
Thanks so much, Susan! I will experiment.
Cardamom would also be a nice spice addition. Enjoy!
I confess I have never used cardamom in my cooking! I will have to try it. Thanks, MrsLarkin!
Leaving it out would be fine, too, but I agree with the suggestions below.
Thank you, good to know!
Allspice and ginger go nicely with apples. Also a hint of vanilla, lemon, and saffron would be good.
Thanks, Rengahan - I see a lot of experiments in my future! :-)

Ginger root is really good with apple pie too.
Thanks, HalfPint - I see your MVP win is well-earned. :-) Any suggestions on how much ginger root to use with this recipe?
I'm not a big fan of cinnamon. So I use vanilla, sometimes with some lemon zest, in apple desserts.
