A question about a recipe: Truly Scrumptious Apple Pie

B82dedc4 e5c4 426e 9998 e5e6b151515b  2013 0916 wc scrumptious apple pie 003 1

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.

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.

Allspice and ginger go nicely with apples. Also a hint of vanilla, lemon, and saffron would be good.

Ginger root is really good with apple pie too.

I'm not a big fan of cinnamon. So I use vanilla, sometimes with some lemon zest, in apple desserts.
