Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe – the perfect blend of cinnamon, ginger, cloves and allspice for your favorite Pumpkin Dessert Recipes. Let me show you how easy it is to make this popular spice in your own kitchen!
I was all set to bake my Pumpkin Apple Dump Cake Recipe recently and realized I was out of my favorite Pumpkin Pie Spice. The little container was empty. I’m not really sure why I felt the need to keep the empty container, but that’s another story.
I was all set to make the trip to the grocery store to spend around $6.00 on a tiny container of my favorite Fall spice blend when I realized I could most likely make this myself with ingredients I already have on hand.
How do you make pumpkin pie spice from scratch?
So what if you go to your pantry and find your spice jar empty as I did? No need to make a special trip to the grocery store either. You can easily make this popular season blend at home with just a few other spices that I’m sure you have on hand in your pantry.
