That's a pretty spicy mix, but it sounds good.
My mom used to make the best cinnamon apple rings. They were really spicy too. I don't know how she did it, except that the apples were still crisp, and bright red from the Red Hots in them.
I've gone through all her recipes, but can't find that one. I may see if my aunt knows anything about it.

It was good. It is basically a spice for apple pie and things like that.

Yes that is right or it could also mean

8 tbsp cinnamon
4 tbsp nutmeg
2 tbsp allspice
1 tbsp cloves or ginger

or

8 dixie cups of cinnamon
4 dixie cups of nutmeg
2 dixie cups of allspice
1 dixie cups of cloves or ginger

Basically it does not matter what unit of measurement you use as long as the proportions stay the same.

Of course, it gets harder if you start with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon...

Then you have to remember the math skills you learned in school.

They sell apple and pumpkin pie spices at www.penzeys.com I recently used a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice in an apple pie and it was just right.
