Chinese Five-Spice Powder

Equal parts of star anise, Szechuan peppercorn, cinnamon, cloves, and fennel seeds make up this mild, fragrant Chinese staple.

To add an exotic kick to holiday sweets, you might try substituting five-spice powder for cinnamon or nutmeg in spiced sweets such as pumpkin or zucchini bread and spice cookies.

Buy premixed five-spice powder at the grocery store, or make your own fresh blend by combining roughly equal amounts of all five spices in a clean coffee grinder or blender.
