It's that time of year again

Now that fall is in full swing... It's time to make some of those fall family favorites. This time of year I love homemade chili, veggie beef soup, pumpkin pie, baked apples, and all the other warming treats. I'm going to take a few days and post some of my favorite fall family recipes!!

How about some homemade pumpkin and apple pie spice! This time of year I go through soooo much pumpkin pie spice, so I was overjoyed when I finally found the perfect blend of spices at home, instead of having to buy it!

I found these mixtures over at Baking Bites and so far they've seemed to work perfect!

Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/4 cup ground cinnamon
2 tbsp ground ginger
2 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp ground nutmeg*
1/2 tsp ground cardamom (optional)

Apple Pie Spice
1/4 cup ground cinnamon
1 tbsp ground allspice
2 tsp ground nutmeg*
2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cardamom (optional)

Combine all ingredients for desired mix and blend well. Store in a small, airtight container. Feel free to experiment with amounts to get a blend that works for you.

*If using freshly ground nutmeg, you might want to cut back a little bit because the flavor can be quite strong. Since you’re going to be storing the mix anyway, it is not crucial to use freshly ground here.

Baking Bites is a wonderful blog! Take a look if you ever have a spare moment. I'm sure you'll find a lot of yummy sounding treats!
