When I saw that the three main ingredients of Holiday Pumpkin Pie Spice are cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, which are my favorite "sweet" spice trio, I immediately knew that this spice blend was going to create the wonderful aromas and tastes of the holidays. For those who have not cooked with cardamom, the exotic spice perfectly compliments the other flavors without dominating the dessert. I love the unexpected addition of orange peel which provides a subtly fresh flavor without tasting citrusy. This nine-spice mixture is a must for Holiday Pumpkin Pie, a superb pumpkin pie recipe. Thank you, Spice Guru, for a homemade spice combination that awakens the holiday spirit within!
