Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice

Fall is here, so stock up on pumpkin puree, whip up a quick batch of pumpkin pie spice, and pre-heat your ovens! This recipe is a total must have, made from all the common household spices most of you probably already have in your cupboards. 

Trust me when I tell you, that this spice blend will come in handy this season for some specially featured recipe I have coming up, like my pumpkin spice cheesecake, pumpkin seed brittle, pumpkin cupcakes, pumpkin spice caramels, pumpkin pie fudge, pumpkin quick bread, and more!

While many recipes call for 5+ spices, just to get 1 teaspoon worth of flavor, this simple spice blend is a time saver as well as a money saver, compared to the pumpkin pie spice bottles at the grocery store. This recipe can be easily doubled depending on how much you want to make.
