Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice

Ok, we did it. We couldn’t wait any longer. It was just too difficult.

Our Halloween decorations are up. And then Sunday afternoon, I was laying on the couch with all of our Halloween lights on, a gazillion fall-scented candles were lit, and I took a nap and it was all so glorious. Pure bliss.

I’m giving you guys a lot of pumpkin stuff lately. I hope you’re not sick of it already. With all of these amazing pumpkin recipes floating around in the blogosphere, you are going to need a ton of pumpkin pie spice handy. I cringe every time I go to the store to get spices and see that a tiny bottle costs $6. That’s a lot of money! Especially when you consider the fact that you probably already have most of the individual spices you need right in your kitchen. Homemade pumpkin pie spice is not only great to keep on your own counter, but it also makes a cute little gift to give to family and friends, just find some small jars, cute labels, and maybe some ribbon!
