Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice

Sometimes I wonder why I have spent so much money buying the tiny little containers of pumpkin pie spice when I usually have all the ingredients on hand to make my own. Save yourselves some money, & possibly even a trip to the store if you have everything at home, & make your own pumpkin pie spice. It’s as easy as stirring or blending a few ingredient together. The small McCormick jar from the store has about 3 TBSP in it & I almost always use 2 TBSP in the recipes I use so I am spending like $5-$6(+) or so each time I make a recipe. Well, not anymore! I am so glad I am over that stupidity & on to making my own blend. The only difference between McCormick Pumpkin Pie Spice & mine, is that I add cloves. If you don’t like cloves, then leave it out, but it really adds more flavor that you love from fall spices.

As usual, a simple post like this is usually a pre-cursor to another fantastic post. So stay tuned for a delicious dessert you might want to trade out your pumpkin pie with this Thanksgiving. Coming up on Sunday’s post. You won’t want to miss it!
