There’s no need to buy pumpkin pie spice at the store when you can make your own in just minutes with the spices you probably already have in your kitchen. Make some today and be ready for fall baking!
Now that September 1st has come and gone, it seems like everyone has fall and pumpkin on their minds. The weather is still warm here but there’s been a definite chill in the air in the mornings. We enjoyed dinner outside on the patio last night, and are predicted to get temperatures over 100 degrees (!) most days this week, but even so I broke out the pumpkin this weekend. The earlier we start with fall baking, the longer we can enjoy it, right? 😉
I’ve been making this Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice for years. I always make a big batch at the beginning of pumpkin season and then I have it handy whenever the need to bake with pumpkin hits. This recipe takes just 5 ingredients, and I’m betting you likely have them in your kitchen already. As you whisk the spices together, you’ll be hit with the scent of pumpkin pie. That alone is enough to get me in full-on fall baking mode!
Last week I shared my first fall-ish recipe of the year, this Greek Yogurt Apple-Cinnamon Bread (which you guys seem to love and I totally agree). This weekend I stuck with the fall theme in the kitchen but switched from apples to pumpkin. I can’t wait to share the recipe that I made with you! It was a huge hit with the family, and if you look closely you’ll get a sneak peek in one of the photos in this post. I have so many ideas for pumpkin recipes swirling around in my head, and I’m testing out another one today. Can you tell I’m excited for fall and all of the possibilities it brings in the kitchen?
