You made your list and checked it twice, your grocery list that is! You went to the store and got everything you needed for T-Day. But then it happened, Turkey Day comes and you go to make that pumpkin pie, or those pumpkin muffins for breakfast, or that sweet potato casserole and low and behold you didn’t make it home with the Pumpkin Pie Spice (dun dun dun)! EKK! What are you going to do!?!
Sorry to bring up anyone’s dreaded Thanksgiving Day nightmares; but it was fun being overly dramatic! A TON of holiday recipes call for pumpkin pie spice. I mean sure you could pick it up at the store but a.) it can be pretty expensive for a little container of it (although sometimes around this time of year they have it on sale) and 2.) most people already have all the ingredients for pumpkin pie spice already in their basic spice rack. So don’t get mad (get Glad! hehe) if you are in the middle of baking up some yummy holiday treats (like I am now, I can’t wait to post them) and you don’t have that pumpkin pie spice. Just use the recipe below and measure out whatever amount the recipe you are making calls for.
Pumpkin Pie Spice
2 tablespoon cinnamon
2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoon ginger
1 1/2 teaspoon allspice
Mix all spices and store in an air-tight container.
