Stir together a few pantry staples to make this DIY Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice! It’s full of warmth and is a cost friendly substitution to that store bought jar!
Today’s post is a simple recipe that everyone should know!! Homemade pumpkin pie spice! How many of you have started a fall baking recipe only to find out you don’t have enough pumpkin pie spice?? Or worse, completely ran out? I have too many times to count. You would think one of these days I would learn my lesson and check to make sure I have all the ingredients before I start baking.
I do usually have all the spices to make this homemade pumpkin pie spice though! And let me tell you something, I actually like it better than the store bought version. I think it has a better flavor, plus it’s fun to whip up a small batch and smell in the wonderful aroma!
Why should you make your own??
Well, let me tell you! For starters, it’s more cost effective than buying something already pre-made at the store, especially if you already have the spices on hand. It won’t go stale as fast because you can make a small batch and use it up in one baking session. You can change up the recipe to suit your tastes. Don’t like nutmeg, leave it out. Really like cinnamon add in a little extra.
See, I just gave you 3 very good reasons why you should just make your own. Trust me you’ll never go back to the store bought jar!
So, hurry and get in the kitchen and bake up something with this homemade pumpkin pie spice because it’s pumpkin season!! If you do be sure to use the #countrysidecravings on Instagram so I can see all of your creations!! Can’t wait!
