Pumpkin Pie Spice

Labels printed from here

With all these yummy pumpkin treats begging to be made around this time of year, pumpkin pie spice is a must-have ingredient. It is incredibly easy to make and can be made with spices you probably you already have on hand.

Today I'm sharing two ways to make it...a teaspoon of spice and a large batch.

Let's start with the large batch.

4 parts ground cinnamon
2 parts ground ginger
2 parts ground nutmeg
1 part ground cloves or allspice

I usually use Tablespoons as my "parts".

To make a smaller batch (for one recipe) follow this recipe. It will make 1 1/8 tsp of Pumpkin Pie Spice:

1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/8 tsp. cloves or allspice

These two variations come from The Oregonian FOODay (by Barbara Durbin) and I have used it for many years.

Happy pumpkin-treat-making!
