So what happens when you start making a great fall recipe (like these wonderful, delicious, moist pumpkin muffins) only to find you’re out of or just plain don’t have pumpkin pie spice? Don’t drop everything and run to the store (and certainly don’t put off making that yummy recipe), just rumble through your spice cabinet and make your own! Assuming you have some basic spices on hand and all of two minutes that it takes to throw them together, you will be on you’re way! I make a big batch to put in an old spice jar so I only have to make it every once and a while. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Pie Spice

Pumpkin Pie Spice   (Print Me)

Yield: about 2 Tbsp

1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground allspice
big pinch of cardamom/mace (I had neither, so I skipped)

Blend all the spices together and store in an air tight container or spice jar.
