Pumpkin Pie Spice

It's almost here! Fall! I'm so excited. I love fall weather, gorgeous fall leaves, boots, and pumpkin, pumpkin, PUMPKIN! I'm finally getting around to sharing how I make my Pumpkin Pie Spice with you! I love mixing my own spice seasonings, I can tweak them to our liking.
This pie spice is fragrant and flavorful. I used some whole spices, but pre ground works great. Sometimes I add powdered vanilla to this mix also.
Here are a few things you can use this Pumpkin Pie Spice for, but really just use it like you normally do.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese rolls.

Give Peas A Chance Pumpkin Pie Spice

(Makes enough for an 8 ounce canning jar)

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon (1-3/4 ounces/48 grams)
5 teaspoons ground ginger (3/8 ounce/11 grams)
1 tablespoon whole Allspice berries, finely ground* (3/8 ounce/ 9 grams)
2 teaspoons ( 1/8 ounce/ 2 grams)  ground cloves
4 teaspoons ground nutmeg** (1/4 ounce/8 grams)
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom seed (optional)

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Keep in an airtight container.
Adjust spices to your tastes.

The cardamom is not traditionally in pumpkin pie spice, but it is good. If you aren't sure about it just add a pinch to a recipe you are making to test it out first. No need to put it in the whole batch.

* Allspice- about 1 tablespoon plus about 1 teaspoon ground
** Nutmeg- this was about 4 small whole nutmeg ground
