I`m sure you all have seen recipes all over the web for homemade pumpkin pie spice. If so, I`m sorry. If you have not, then, YAY! :)
I never thought of making my own because I`m not the type who goes crazy about making everythinggg from scratch. I like baking from scratch, but I also don`t mind the occasional frozen puff pastry.
Hence, I never cared much for making my own pumpkin pie spice. BUT, then I realized I already had all the ingredients except for ground cloves. I want to have pumpkin pie spice too! I just never bought any since spices are expensive.
I rationalized that if I buy the ground cloves and make my own pumpkin pie spice, I`ll have two new spices without paying for both! Awesome, right?
Plus, I was able to add more of whatever ingredient I like. I more than like cinnamon. So my version of pumpkin pie spice has a LOT of cinnamon and it`s great~
P.S. I am sharing this now, because I will post a recipe using it soon! Stay tuned! ;)
