Have you ever wondered how to make Pumpkin Pie Spice yourself? One of my very favorite fall recipes is this Cranberry Pumpkin Bread and it calls for 2 TB of pumpkin pie spice and it seems that my tiny little jar of store bought pumpkin pie spice was always empty. This is no surprise considering the large amount needed each time I baked that bread:) I was always annoyed when I went to buy it that it cost so much for so little especially when I was pretty sure I already had everything to make it myself sitting in my spice cupboard. So you can imagine my delight when my friend Sheri shared with the recipe for pumpkin pie spice and sure enough I already keep my kitchen stocked with each of the spices needed. Now I can whip it up myself–saving time and money! I think with Thanksgiving coming up and making pumpkin pies and desserts you will find this little recipe comes in handy! And you must try this Cranberry Pumpkin bread–trust me, it is unique and so tasty!
- 2 TB cinnamon
- 1 TB ginger
- 1½ tsp nutmeg
- 1½ tsp cloves
- I usually put all these ground spices into the jar and shake really well. You could also use a bowl and a fork to mix together. I found these jars at my local craft store--I have also seen them at World Market. You could just reuse your pumpkin pie spice jar when it runs out:)
