I like to make my own pumpkin pie spice as it is so easy. This recipe fills a standard spice jar. Since I start fall baking this upcoming week, I like to have a jar ready to use. Pumpkin pie spice is not just for pie. Use it in cake, cookies, brownies, bars, cheesecake, etc. The 5 spices you need are: cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves. Just mixing the spices warmed up the kitchen and really made me feel like it was fall. We have had temperatures in the 90s and only this past week has it started cooling down. The aroma from pumpkin pie spice is sublime and I love to use it in my baked goods. If you need more just double the recipe. Happy Fall Baking!
