What’s the best part of fall? Pumpkin! And what’s better than a homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice that can go in literally any recipe, from coffee to pie to cookies!
I have something to confess… I have never tried pumpkin spice… or pumpkin (of any kind)… so I guess I’m not your typical white girl (however I do love Starbucks so I think I still qualify).
I’m not really a picky person and I love to try new things and there’s not really any particular reason to why I haven’t tried pumpkin before, I just have other things I would rather eat.
And someone told me with you either love pumpkin or you hate it, and my family doesn’t like it, so pumpkin wasn’t something that would just be around or served for dessert.
But I’ve decided, it’s time to try it. And what better way to try it than to make it (and its complementary spices) to give it the best chance?
This recipe is also so simple, it literally took me only 2 minutes to whip it together and it made my whole kitchen smell heavenly.
Pumpkin Pie Spice
All you’ll need is 4 teaspoons of cinnamon, 2 teaspoons of ginger, 1 teaspoon of cloves, and 1/2 a teaspoon of nutmeg.
I never even realized that Pumpkin Spice didn’t actually have pumpkin in it, but now I do and I understand this spice just complements the pumpkins flavor.
Then stir them all together, put in a pretty and aesthetically pleasing jar, slap a label on it, and boom! You’ve now made the most popular fall spice and it didn’t even take you 5 minutes.
Put it in your coffee, cookies, pies, frosting, or using it as a decorative topping! I know my boyfriend is going to be the primary user of the homemade pumpkin spice because he’ll put it in his coffee, which is why I made double because I have plenty of recipes I wanna use it in too!
Also, I do realize I spelled “pumkin” instead of pumpkin… my excuse is… I was hit by a car (haha it was a long time ago and i’m perfectly fine now, that’s just my excuse whenever I make a mistake).
