Five spices make up this aromatic blend and will definitely give any treat the taste of Fall. Pumpkin Pie Spice is heavily used in my home. From pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie to everything made with pumpkin, whether savory or sweet, I sprinkle this spice like crazy. I’ve decided to make my own so I always have it on hand (and don’t have to get 5 different spices out every time) and can dash it here and there, and everywhere to give all my baked goods a perfect fall flavor!
Make Your Own Blend
Instead of tediously measuring out each spice individually, why not have it all combined together, conveniently ready to go, catered to your liking? I know most grocery stores sell it already blended together, but I like to make it to please my personal palate. Plus, I can make a large amount to last me all season. And, it’s way less money! Use whole spices and grate or grind yourself or simply buy the powders. You have total control.
What Makes Up Pumpkin Pie Spice
It’s usually made up of 5 spices – most of which you might have laying around in your spice cabinet
Although sometimes, I’m not a huge fan of cloves! I personally omit the cloves or just use a small bit, but I’m in love with cinnamon, so I go a little bit heavier. I mix it up and place it in my pantry, then when I’m in need of pumpkin pie spice, it’s ready to go in a dash! Make it your own blend specific to your likes. Also, make a lot or make a little! This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled or even halved!
A Great Gift Idea
Pumpkin Pie Spice also makes a great gift. Go to your local craft store and buy a cute little glass container and some fall ribbon. Label it and give to your favorite humans! It’s thoughtful, homemade and will bring the Fall season into their kitchens! It’s truly a gift that keeps giving!
