Why make your own spice blends:

I have probably bought pumpkin pie spice in the past but I don’t anymore for several reasons.

  • Number one, I don’t like to spend money on another jar that contains spices I already have in my pantry.
  • Number two, (my kids would probably tell you this should be number 1) I am also a kind of a control freak, I always wish to know what is in any blend and have my own opinion on what should be in or not in any blend.
  • Number three, Making your own pumpkin pie spice is totally the way to go.  It can be tweaked to your family’s taste buds, like more cinnamon, less nutmeg, etc.



 And for your convenience we have included several recipes below that you can use this pumpkin pie spice substitute.   Or just replace the store bought version with this blend for any of your family recipes.  Please let us know if in the comments your favorite way to use this fall spice blend. 

   It’s Fall Y’all!!!
 Enjoy the flavors!!

I love homemade spices - I think they taste better when you mix them yourself!
