Pumpkin Pie Spice

I know Pumpkin Pie Spice is not life changing. Today I needed 1/4 of a teaspoon of the spice. I decided just to mix a batch and be prepared for the coming holiday baking.
I don't buy pumpkin pie spice--why should I, I have all the spices in my spice rack. A Google search turned up several recipes for the common autumnal spice. After much review I made a mix that should suit my needs. I plan to have a cute jar with a fun label to put the spice in but the holiday baking season could be over by the time I get that done. So please make a batch of Pumpkin Pie Spice and be prepared for the coming baking season!
 Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/4 cup cinnamon
2 Tablespoons ginger
1 Tablespoon nutmeg--fresh grated
1 Tablespoon cloves
Mix together and use this season--make a fresh batch next year!

What did I need my 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice for?? Stay tuned for a yummy dessert featuring pumpkin cheesecake and chocolate--two flavors that are delicious together.

I never thought about making my own pumpkin pie spice. I use it a lot during the fall especially when I make pumpkin muffins by the dozens.
Thanks for the recipe!

I make my own as well! So much cheaper than the tiny bottle they sell in stores!
