I hope y’all are having a good week! I’ve pulled out my cans of pumpkin and am totally enjoying adding it to recipes. I love to make my own pumpkin pie spice because it’s so quick and easy to do with ingredients that are typically already in my spice rack. Making your own pumpkin pie spice is kind of like making your own taco seasoning – it’s good for you, economical and simple.
I found the cutest jar for my Pumpkin Pie Spice at Williams-Sonoma for less than $3. Love it! You can also buy a set of them here. I’ve played with the proportions in my pumpkin pie spice recipe and I think it’s a fabulous combination with great flavoring. The spice of the ginger is so delicious.

If your kids love cinnamon toast, you can add pumpkin pie spice to a sugar shaker and make a Fall version of cinnamon toast. Yum!
So, what can you use Pumpkin Pie Spice in? Well, just about anything. I toss it in oatmeal and in some of these recipes…
Ahhh, all things pumpkin! How I love this time of year!
