Don’t waste your money buying Pumpkin Pie Spice! You have all of the ingredients in your pantry! It takes less than 5 minutes!
It seems like since mid August, or earlier, I have been seeing Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Pumpkin Spiced Cookies, Cakes, shakeology, (whatever that is), and whatever else people can think of! I’m sorry, I do not want to hear about pumpkins until the weather turns cooler and crisp! That’s the time to search out the perfect pumpkin- not when it is 95°F with a dew point over 70. I just can’t do it! Now, is the time for pumpkin spiced everything you can think of!
If you have searched for Pumpkin Pie Spice on the spice aisle at your local grocer, you know that it is not cheap! The spice islands one I looked at the other day was 7 dollars for 2 oz! That is $56 per pound!!
Don’t do it! Chances are that you have all of the spices you need at home. The only one you may not have is Allspice, and you can easily just eliminate that!
