Pumpkin Pie Spice

To make almost any good pumpkin recipe you need a key set of spices that come together to make Pumpkin Pie Spice. This delectable Fall spice can be purchased pre-made in an expensive tiny package at your local grocery store OR you can save the cash, make only as much as you need, and see how cool the inside of a whole nutmeg looks after it's been grated if you make it yourself at home!

Pumpkin Pie Spice consists of some variation of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and/or cloves.

I followed the directions from Joy the Baker and made a small amount of Pumpkin Pie Spice to have on hand for a series of Pumpkin recipes I can't wait to try.
