I use:

1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
and 1/4 tsp each of
cloves, allspice, ginger and mace.

This is from my mother's recipe. She said that if you didn't have one of the 1/4 spices you could just use more of another, but IMO you must have either cloves or allspice. BTW, don't use freshly-grated nutmeg or, if you do, drastically reduce the amount. I learned this by making a pie once that reeked of nutmeg.

Funny, I'm baking one tomorrow, so I was just spice sniffing this morning. It was time for new cloves and allspice, but I use them quite a bit anyway.
