Homemade pumpkin pie spice mix

Have you ever wanted to make a recipe that calls for "pumpkin pie spice" but don't have it in your pantry? It turns out, pumpkin pie spice in made from things that most people already have so there's no need to go out and spend the money on another spice that's just going to sit on the shelf. Instead, you can make your own with stuff you probably already have lying around your spice rack.

Here is all you need to make your own pumpkin pie spice:

  • 4 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons ground ginger
  • 3 teaspoons ground allspice
  • 3 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg

Take these ingredients and put them in a small mason jar or some tupperware and shake them up good.

You don't need to use exact measurements and can alter to your own taste. My kids hate the taste of ginger so I usually cut it by about half.

On a side note, pumpkin pie spice tastes great sprinkled on your morning coffee or over your late night scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Can I freeze homemade cheesecake


No. the cheese base will "break" and have a weird texture. Cheesecakes keep for about a week in the fridge. If you need a smaller size, use 1 8 oz brick of cream cheese, 1 large egg and 1/4 cuo of sugar over a graham cracker crust to make 6 cheesecake cupcakes.

How do you make sweet potato dumplings?


Spray a 13x9x2 inch baking dish or pan. Take one can of biscuits and peel each one in half, (you'll have 16 pieces). I have used crescent roll dough, but biscuits are easier. Press biscuit pieces to flatten them and place sweet potato to one side of the biscuit. I use frozen sweet potato patties but, you can use canned sweet potatoes (mash them good) for this recipe. Cut the patties in half or use 1 heaping tablespoon of mashed sweet potato and put the sweet potato to one side of the biscuit. Sprinkle with your spices of choice ( pumpkin pie spice,apple pie spice or even just cinnamon). Bring the one side of the biscuit over the other side and press the edges together to seal it really good. Line your dumplings in two rows in your baking dish, sprinkle with your spices of choice. Now, in a saucepan combine 2 cups of water,2 cups of sugar,1 1/2 sticks of butter (or margarine), 1 tablespoon of corn starch, 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Whisk together and put on a medium-high heat until just boiling-- all the time whisking ( to prevent lumps). Soon as it boils pour it over the dumplings. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. When you pull it form the oven sprinkle with cinnamon and serve. If there is any left-over (HAHA!) It reheats well and is still SO_O_O_O fantastic!
