How to Make Pumpkin Pie Spice and Add Fab
Flavours to All Your Pies and Desserts

When you make pumpkin pie spice yourself, you'll soon discover the difference between a commercial mix and a homemade one! The freshness of the ingredients and the fabulous flavours and mouthwatering aromas it'll add to your pumpkin pies, puddings and dessert has to be tried to be believed! (See the bottom of the page for links to more of my recipes)

Note: Use whole allspice berries and cloves if you can as these will add the best flavours. You can use pre-ground powders if you like and simply halve the quantities in the recipe. So instead of 2 teaspoons of whole cloves you use 1 teaspoon of pre-ground cloves. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well and stir in with any other powders when making.
