You run to the cupboard and you are out of pumpkin pie spice!
Panic sits in. It is pumpkin spice season what am I going to do.
Don’t panic you probably already have all the necessary ingredients to make a batch yourself.
I ran out of pumpkin pie spice over the holidays, and yes panic did sit in. Looking through my spice cabinet, I knew I already had the ingredients to make pumpkin pie spice at home. I decided to mix some up and keep on hand for whenever I wanted to use some in my recipes. Which is like all the time during the holidays. I enjoy making dishes all year round with pumpkin pie spice. Try these baked oatmeal bars with pumpkin pie spice instead.
