Ways to customize Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend

  • add 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla bean Powder to give pumpkin pie spice a hint of sweet vanilla
  • add 1/8 teaspoon Cardamom to add intense, sweet floral notes (don’t add too much because it can become stringent)
  • add 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon ground Cloves if you love the warm spicy directness of cloves
