Pumpkin pie spice is a handy blend to have on hand in the kitchen, especially if you mean to make any pies, cookies, or fall-themed treats this autumn. You can buy pre-made spice blends at the grocery store, but since I buy my spices in bulk already, I find that it’s easier to blend up a quick jar myself.
Plus, most pumpkin pie spice blends are only cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice. But I really like to add more spices to my blend to round it out a little more, like cloves and cardamom. Especially cardamom!
