It's that time of year. Pumpkin Spice time!
There's no -one- best way to celebrate the time of year, but we have one option. Instead of going out and buying the pumpkin spice basics, why not make them at home instead?
Below, we have a classic recipe for making your own Pumpkin Spice, how to bake the staple Pumpkin Pie, and how to make the perfect Pumpkin Spice Latte.
4 teaspoons (8 parts) Ground Cinnamon
2 teaspoons (4 parts) Ground Ginger
1 teaspoon (2 parts) Ground Clove
1 teaspoon (2 parts) Ground Allspice
½ teaspoon (1 part) Ground Nutmeg
Combine the spices in a bowl, whisk together until fully combined, and store in an airtight container. It's as easy as that.
1 can (15 oz) pumpkin puree
¾ cup Sugar
1 ¼ cup Evaporated Milk
1 ½ Teaspoon of Pumpkin Spice
