Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice

Pumpkin pie spice, 
for me,
is probably a once or twice a year necessity.
So it's not something I always keep on hand or like to spend precious dollars on,
and just for a measly little container of it too.

But recently, finding myself in need of it, and finding my little container smelling
not-so-pumpkin-y anymore, 
(it had been expired for over a year...or two),
I decided to make my own.

It was a tad overwhelming with how many different versions google dug up, 
but this one looked the best to me
mostly because I loooove cinnamon
and the ratio just kinda seemed right.

I guess there's no way to really know if it's good unless you bake somethin' up with it
and taste it.

Which is exactly what I did.
And it passed with flying colors.
And that will be my next post.

Pumpkin Pie Spice

1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp nutmeg (freshly ground is best)
big pinch of cardamom (optional)

Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container.  Use in any recipe calling for pumpkin pie spice.
