Pumpkin Pie Spice

Fall is in the air here.  It has been blustery and cold this week, so I've been keeping warm with some time in the kitchen.  I have a fabulous recipe coming up for a fresh take on pumpkin pie but in order to make that I needed some pumpkin pie spice.  I can't even count the times that I have wanted to make a recipe but couldn't because I had no pumpkin pie spice.  Well, that's no longer going to stand in my way as I can now make my own.  Hooray!!

Pumpkin Pie Spice
(from Baking Bites)

1/4 cup cinnamon
2 tablespoons ginger
2 teaspoons cloves
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cardamom

*Mix it all together and store in an airtight container.

I omitted the cloves because I don't like them and the cardamom because I don't have any.  This tasted so yummy in the recipe I used it in.  Baking Bites also has a recipe for Apple Pie Spice which I'm sure would be great also.
