Pumpkin Pie Spice

Years ago, I ran out of pumpkin pie spice. I took a peek at the ingredients list and realized I already had everything in my pantry. So I had an idea! I could make my own!

I found a recipe for pumpkin pie in a cookbook that didn't call for pumpkin pie spice. Rather, it had all the separate spices listed. I used that for my ratios, increased them and voila'! I had created my own spice mixture!

Below is the recipe in case you want to create your own! I like to add several dashes to my coffee grounds in the morning to make a tasty (not artificial) latte in the mornings!
