Help! Am planning to make these:

Spice Cookies
(recipe courtesy of Sara Moulton)
Spice-cookie dough:
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon each ground nutmeg and salt
1/4 teaspoon each ground allspice and cloves
1 1/2 cups butter or margarine, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a large bowl mix flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt, allspice and cloves until blended. In another large bowl beat butter and sugar with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Reduce mixer speed to low and gradually add flour mixture, beating until well blended. Divide dough in thirds. Shape each into a ball and flatten to a 1-inch-thick round. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour or until firm enough to roll. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Have cookie sheets ready. On a lightly floured surface roll one third of the dough at a time (keep remainder refrigerated) to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut dough in desired shapes with floured 3-inch cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. (Chill and reroll scraps.) Bake about 12 minutes or until cookies are golden on undersides and edges are just starting to brown. Cool completely on sheet on wire rack. Ice or decorate as desired.

BUT I only have mixed spice in the house and am not sure how much to substitute?
(for those in the USA this is a blend of most of the spices wanted for this recipe.)
HELP!!!!
