Say Goodbye to Summer and a Big Hello to Fall Flavors

Summer is always fun but when fall is around the corner, we can’t help but be excited to pop on our favorite flannel shirts and hunt down all the delicious autumn flavors to cook up. With autumn in full swing, it’s that time of year to cook up some cozy, comforting, and nourishing meals at home. Apples, particularly caramel apple pie, are must haves to eat during the fall.

Homemade apple pie spice brings a feeling of belonging and warmth like no other flavor. The taste of granny smiths with soft caramel baked with a homemade pie crust bring back sweet childhood and family memories.

A Fall Breakfast Idea with Delicious Apple Pie Spice

Looking for a warm beverage like hot apple cider but without the sugar or searching for a new fall breakfast idea to warm you up? Apple pie spice is the perfect combination of spices and flavors that make you think of autumn. Apple pie spice is a fan favorite that can be used in various favorite fall recipes to bake and pair with a cup of tea.

Our caramel apple pie scone recipe combines a favorite dessert with a breakfast pastry that, when paired with tea, is simply heavenly.

Even better, Red Rose’s Caramel Apple Pie Tea allows you to treat yourself with the taste of a slice of decadence minus the calories in a cup of tea bursting with the deliciousness of one of our favorite pies. Our herbal tea can be enjoyed any time of day and has hints of crisp apples blended with the richness of caramel. It’s a great option for those who are limiting their baking or sugar intake to still indulge in.
