Pumpkin Pie Spice
This pleasant blend of spices is typically made with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice or cloves. Some formulas also include mace or salt. Although you'll find dozens of different recipes for the blend, they're all predominantly cinnamon. Pumpkin pie spice is a good match for pie pumpkin, sweet potato, and squash dishes, cereals, and slow-baked muffins, cakes, cookies, and bars. These spices also complement fruit such as apples, pears, or peaches, nuts including walnuts and pecans, and smoothies like those based on almond milk.
