Warm spices bursting with the fragrance of fall, ready for use in a moment’s notice all blended together in a cute little jar. Oh, the joys of pumpkin pie spice blend.
For years I was a die hard purest when it came to spice blends. I would not use them, not on your life.
I would only use each spice individually, putting my nose up in the air and insisted that each recipe I created needed to have its own exact measurements of each individual spice for optimal flavor.
Well, I digress. I have discovered the joys of creating some of my own blends for simplicity sake. It’s true, I often prefer to add individual spices to recipe, but sometimes you just need a break.
Last year I caved and created my own garam masala blend, followed by this pumpkin pie spice blend. I have a couple blends more waiting to be shared as well. When I cave, I cave big time. 😉
I have so many fall beverages and treats that I like to make, that it made sense to keep pumpkin pie spice on hand to have pumpkin pie lattes and such ready in less time.
