This mix comes closest to my favourite store-bought pumpkin pie spice. Because I like to use it so often, I buy the individual spices in the bulk food section, then mix up a jar of it. Its less expensive than purchasing the little tins of name-brand spice mix, and you can stir up as little as or as much as you like at one time.
- Simply stir these spices together well and store in a small airtight jar or old spice container that will hold about 6 oz.
- Sprinkle some onto your coffee grounds before you start the coffeemaker every morning -- it lends a wonderful aroma.
- You can also mix this with some white sugar, as you would cinnamon-sugar, to sprinkle on your buttered toast etc.
- Use it in any sweet baking -- its heavenly!
This recipe is great, I love the combination of spices. So far I have not used it in baking, but it smells wonderful and I plan on using it very soon.
Following one reviewer I added 1/2 tbs of cardamom to the mix and since I didnt have enough nutmeg, I used half mace for it.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this winner with us, Esmeralda.
Allspice: 1tsp each cinnamon & nutmeg, & 1/2tsp cloves. (You already own all the ingredients)
I love that this is large portions...didn't have allspice, but was ok without...maybe 4 stars instead of 5, but worked great. Thanks!
