Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix
Use this spice blend for any recipe calling for pumpkin pie spice. Beyond muffins, quick breads, and pies, try this flavorful mix sprinkled on oatmeal, applesauce, or even cappuccino.
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons (1/2 tablespoon) ground nutmeg (see notes)
1 1/2 teaspoons (1/2 tablespoon) ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground allspice
In a small bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well.
Store in air tight container and use wherever pumpkin pie spice is called for.
If possible, freshly grating the nutmeg will provide an extra flavor boost. While this recipe is a great way to “clean out” your spice cabinet, fresh spices will yield the most flavor.
