    We Canadians don't have this item (although it sounds yummy) - do you know of an alternative we can use since the Holiday Festive Desserts cookbook is FILLED with it?

    It's pretty much cinnamon and nutmeg mixed together.

    Here is what is on the label...

    Korintje cinnamon
    Nutmeg
    Allspice
    Ground Orange Peel
    Cloves
    Ginger


    Maybe you can come up with a recipe of your own!

    Is it close to Pumkin Pie Spice?

    It is close - the orange peel is what gives it a slightly different flavor....but you could always grate a little orange rind into your recipe!

    To substitute, for each teaspoon of CPSB - I would do:

    heaping 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    1/4 teas. nutmeg
    1/8 teas. of the other spices, and some grated orange rind.

    Why the heck would they include this cookbook in our product line here if they're not going to include the spice that is throughout the cookbook?!?!?!

    Sometimes I swear they just don't think!

    Thanks for the tips, guys - as for the inclusion of the blend in the cookbook - only us Crazy Canucks don't get the blend - must be a food board thing or something - we have the rest of the panty collection.

    I use the cinnamon plus in place of all recipes that call for pumpkin pie spice and it doesn't change the flavor - enhances it if anything. So I would use that as the sub. Good tip about adding the orange zest. I hadn't realized that difference.

    You could probably ask test kitchen for an alternative.

    I realize that, that's why I think the cookbook shouldn't have been available here until/unless the spice was as well. I mean "here's a new cookbook with wonderful recipes but I'm sorry you can't make them since we don't sell that and I have NO idea how to suggest you make that spice yourself" - ridiculous!

    I've created a little label that consultants can either put onto the cookbooks themselves (if they receive shipment) or put in the catalogue on the Library page. You can always email it to the customer, or put it on a post card....

    Hope this is helpful to us Canadians.
