Nothing says Fall like pumpkin flavored things. The coffee shops are filled with pumpkin lattes, delis have pumpkin muffins, even ravioli are filled with pumpkin in the Fall. And I love it! Towards the end of the summer, I never can wait for Fall to get here to eat all of the pumpkin goodies.
That being said, as much as I love pumpkin-flavored things, I've never bought pumpkin pie spice. And today in Central Florida, it's like a monsoon. I'm talking trees down in my neighborhood and water coming up through my tiles in the living room (but that's another story). Not the kind of weather that makes you you want to go to the store solely to buy pumpkin pie spice. So what do you do if you're stuck in the house and craving pumpkin goodies, with no pumpkin pie spice? Make your own, of course! I found this recipe for Pumpkin Pie Spice on My Baking Addiction, and I had all of the spices on hand. You probably do, too!
