Finnish gingerbread spice mixture is somewhat similar to pumpkin or apple pie spice mixture.
1 tsp finely ground cinnamon
1 tsp finely ground ginger
1 tsp finely ground cloves
½ tbsp dried, finely ground Seville orange peel
Measure the spices and pour in a small jar, close with a lid and shake until thoroughly mixed.
Use the spice mixture to flavour Finnish Christmas gingerbread cookies, apple pies, breads, cakes, fruit and berry desserts, beverages, etc.
