Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend-2 Ways


Makes 1/4 cup, enough to fill an average spice bottle


There are two recipes here, a standard and a gourmet version. I use the gourmet version, but it requires keeping allspice and mace on hand. It is your choice, both are very tasty, economical, and preservative-free!
