I have WAY too many spices in my spice cabinet! My husband installed a really nice one too that is attached to the inside door of my pantry and it’s really large but I have it packed! The last thing I need are spice blends when I can easily make some with the spices I already have. When you are cooking for two it’s really hard to use up all of your spices before they expire although I do try! Making my own pumpkin pie spice really helps use up all those spices. I just store mine in an empty spice container from one of my used up spices! Recycling=Good! 🙂
I throw this spice blend in any recipe that has similar warm spices in the recipe and it’s really great! Put all the ground spices in your container and then give it a good shake! Find a place to cram it into your spice rack and you’re all set for fall baking! 🙂 Try out your new spice blend in these little yummy Pumpkin Spice Mini Muffins.
