Make Your Own Pumpkin Pie Spice


Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend Recipe



I have several jars of store bought Pumpkin Pie Spice in my pantry, none of which I use.  Can we all agree that the stuff tastes like potpourri?  Not that I'm in the habit of noshing on potpourri, but you know what I mean. Right? Do folks even use potpourri anymore?  I remember it was everywhere when I was a kid, but last week we saw some at a store and my eight year old was thoroughly perplexed by the stuff.  Why would they make a product that looks and smells like snack food, but can't be eaten?  I have to admit, he has a point.

Anyway, I'm always so hopeful when I buy a jar and then I'm systematically let down and end up using my own combination of spices instead.  So this year, rather wasting money on another let down, I decided to whip up my own batch.  And I'm so glad I did because it's delicious! (And not potpourri-ey at all!)  I've been using it in everything from ice cream, to icing, to mug cakes!  This Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe is definitely a keeper.

  1. I've never bought pre-packaged pumpkin pie or apple pie spice blends--I always use the individual spices measured out per recipe--but hey, I'm old-school like this. I also use family hand-me-down recipes. ;)
