Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix

It's that time of year to get out our best recipes and start our holiday baking. But before we lite the oven, we need to check our pantry and make sure we have our basic ingredients on hand. One of the more common ingredients that we will be using, or at least I will be using is pumpkin pie spice. But how many times do we run out of it and not realize it until we need it!?! Here's a quick and easy recipe for making your own spice mix to have readily on hand.The best thing about it, is that you control the flavors.

My favorite holiday pie is my Walnut Pumpkin Pie. When I need pumpkin pie spice, this homemade mix is the first thing I grab. 

Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix
3 Tablespoon Ground Cinnamon
2 teaspoons Ground Ginger
2 teaspoons Ground Nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoons Ground Allspice
1 1/2 teaspoons Ground Cloves
