Pumpkin Pie Spice

Running out of a needed spice can be one of the most annoying baking problems, since it’s likely you have a spice drawer filled with spices your recipe doesn’t call for. As it turns out, you might just have the spices you need if you know how to combine them.

Pumpkin pie spice can be purchased pre-made in a jar at the store, but you can pretty easily mix up spices you already have to make it yourself.

My Baking Addiction, a blog filled with loads of helpful baking information and recipes, can solve your pumpkin pie spice issues. The blog’s author, Jamie, offers a simple pumpkin pie spice recipe that uses cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and a few other standard baking spices. Jamie’s solution will not only help resume a stalled baking adventure, it might also save you the few dollars you would have spent on a pre-made mixture at the store.
