Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice

Dear reader heading into Fall,

(Not a fall, I hope!)

Sometimes recipes call for pumpkin pie spice, a blend which can vary by brand or maker and which is easily replicated with ingredients you probably already have at home.

In order to prepare you for a season full of pumpkin-pie-spicy things, here is a simple mixture that I use - you can increase or decrease the quantities in proportion as desired.

Pumpkin Pie Spice
If you make the Libby recipe, just use two teaspoons per pie of this in replacement of what the can of puree calls for.  

1 tablespoon cinnamon
1-1/2 tsp ginger
3/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp allspice (optional)

Whisk ingredients together well; store in an airtight container.

1/2 cup cinnamon (8 tablespoons)
1/4 cup ginger (12 teaspoons/4 tablespoons)
3 tablespoons cloves (6 teaspoons)
2 teaspoons allspice (optional)

In a (pie)shell,
