DIY Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix – couldn’t be easier..!
It’s that time of year. We’ve started our home school studying. It’s chillier in the mornings. I had to wear a sweater out for a movie date last night. I crave soup. And pumpkin pie spice.
I wasn’t always a pumpkin pie fan, until I made my own a few years ago. Store bought pumpkin pie makes me want to cry. I’ll share my recipe in the next few weeks. But I’ve always loved the warmth of the spice mixture. I’ll be sharing other fall recipes over the season, from dinner to dessert.
But before that, we’ll start at the beginning – with pumpkin pie spice mix. Better than store bought, and if you freshly grind your own nutmeg it really makes a difference. But you don’t need to. Just add all the spices together, whisk and store in an air-tight container. The beauty of this mix is than you can add more or less of the spices if you prefer. More cinnamon if you like. Less cloves, and so on.
So make up a batch and get ready to bake! I’ve included a small batch and bigger batch portions in the printable, so take your pick.
