Essential Baking Spices
Tuck the following essential baking spices in your baking spice rack:
Apple Pie Spice
Do your recipes contain “secret” baking spices and flavorings that were jealously guarded and passed from generation-to-generation with a wink and a smile? Consider sharing with us how you use the above baking spices. If you do, you’ll earn a gift certificate!
- ½ tsp Morton’s Salt Substitute
- 2 cups canned pumpkin
- 1 ½ cup milk
- ½ tsp nutmeg
- 4 large egg yolks
- 1 cup white sugar
- ½ tsp ginger
- 2 tsp cinnamon
Beat all ingredients together with an electric mixer and pour into a pastry-lined 9” pie pan. Bake at 425 degrees for 45-60 minutes or until you can insert a toothpick along the side of the filling and have it come out clean. Serve warm with a dollop of whipped cream and warm mulled cider.
Flavor Extracts and Oils for Candies
Candy-making is an anytime activity that’s fun to enjoy with others. We’ve listed below some of the most popular extracts to include on your shopping list for rock candy, fudge, and other treats.
Flavor Crispy Bars
Try melting butter with some marshmallows in a pot. After melted, mix in a teaspoon or more of one of the above flavorings. Drizzle the marshmallow mixture over two cups of corn flakes or rice cereal in a bowl. Stir and then add the sticky mixture to a pan rubbed in butter. Cool, cut, and serve!
Keep your flavorings and extracts in a dry, cool cabinet. Avoid extreme temperatures and screw on the lids when you aren’t using a particular flavoring. Replace baking flavorings, extracts, and spices, according to their expiration dates.
