It seems like Pumpkin Pie Spice is used by the pounds in our house every year.
Between all the Pumpkin Pancakes, Spiced Pumpkin Energy Bars, Pumpkin Pie Protein Shakes, and Pumpkin Muffins there are lots of tablespoons being dispersed all over the place.
Making your own pumpkin pie spice blend is an easy foolproof way to save money too. Another bonus is that you probably already have all of the ingredients in your cupboard already.
You might even have little empty jars. I find some of mine at Cost Plus/World Market (that was just an aside). There are really a cool variety of cute little jars over there.
Mixing your own spice blends is satisfying and definitely easy. You might as well prep your home now for all the baking that is going to be going on over the next few months.

Don't forget you can double the recipe and give away as gifts.
