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!
