Pumpkin Spice

It’s Tips for Tuesday!

This week’s tip: Make your own pumpkin spice!

Yay, tomorrow is the first day of fall, or as I like to call it…pumpkin spice season 😉  I just love pumpkin spice and get lost in the combination of warm, sweet, and strong spices.  Every September, I restock my spices, so I can make it whenever and as often as I want.  I use it in coffee, baked goods, and even on toast.  Pumpkin spice is super easy to make, and can be made in less than 10 minutes.  I hope you enjoy my recipe, which has a little extra sweetness and spice.  Have a great first day of fall tomorrow 😀

Try these 2 delicious recipes made with my pumpkin spice blend:

      If you can believe it, I just learned a couple years ago how to make my own pumpkin spice! Since then I’ve never purchased another bottle in the spice section!

      Yummy! Here’s to autumn and its rich, warm flavors!

      I never have made pumpkin spice. I never really use it though either. I just measure my spices each time I bake since I switch up with slice dominates. This looks great though and maybe I’ll finally make a batch. The kids certainly love pumpkin spice season, anything with cinnamon or nutmeg and they are all over it!

        I hadn’t made it up until last year, but am so happy I did. I use it daily in my coffee and experiment with it often in baked goods. Although, I still measure my spices out for pumpkin pie. I hope you have a chance to try it 🙂

      I’d like to try this in my oatmeal! Saving this and putting the spices I don’t have in my pantry on my shopping list.

      I love your little jar!

        I bet that would be tasty. I put it on everything I can 😉 Thank you, I just had to use it for the picture. I found it years ago with cinnamon in it and saved it. I always save glass spice jars just in case. Have a wonderful day and I hope you enjoy!

    I would love to hear from you!
