No Churn Apple Pie Spice Sorbet

So tragically, Halloween is over. I sadly packed away all my decorations. However, it's now time to hunker down and turn our creative cooking energy to Thanksgiving, the biggest food day of the year in the USA and my second favorite Holiday.

This sorbet made with fresh apples and  spiked with apple pie spice. It is sweet, slightly tart and the spices  seasonal fall flavor.  

The best part is it's another Another great make-ahead, simple to prepare dessert for Thanksgiving or any Fall gathering. You can easily double or triple the recipe to serve a large group. Just remember this will up the prep time and chill time of the recipe. 

Apple pie spice is simply a mix of ground spices. cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and cardamom and sometimes clove and ginger. You can buy it ready-made or easily whisk together your own to your own preference. Include or leave out whichever ingredient you like best or least. 

Feel free to swap out the cider for apple juice if that's what you have  on hand.
