Re: Please share your favorite FALL recipes with me!

I know, I just bought a bunch of pumpkin to keep in the cupboard. My local grocery store said they probably won't get any more before Thanksgiving because of the shortage!

Pumpkin pie spice is just allspice, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. If you use all of those spices pretty regularly (or already have them), you can make your own. Personally, I find that I only really use cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger at home and they go stale pretty easily, so it's cheaper and more practical for me to buy it already made.

And there's me... who almost always have all of these items on hand because I love to bake...

So yeah, if you have them on hand, just make your own pumpkin spice. If you don't use them often, then it's better to just buy the pre-made.

God bless!
