Apple pie spice can be used in lots of great recipes. But it won't find its way into my shopping cart. Why would I buy a special ingredient when I already have the makings of it in my own cabinet? It takes no time to whip it up, it saves me several dollars, and the mix of spices can be adjusted according to one's own taste. I like to keep my combination simple, but nicely spiced. I don't add ginger (I save that for pumpkin spice) or cloves, but you can if that's what you like. I have even seen cardamom listed on the ingredient list of some blends. I haven't said this in a while, but make it for you, make it your own☺.
