I ran out of pumpkin pie spice recently (we make a lot of pumpkin pancakes and muffins, etc. in our house!), and I kept forgetting to get it at the store. This morning I needed it AGAIN when I wanted to make pumpkin pancakes. I remembered how my Mom said it was really easy to make your own. This was very quick and easy to make, and it will save you money because you are making a new spice from spices that you already have at home! I found a recipe on the Betty Crocker website, and it turned out great.
