Do you hear that? It’s the shivering of autumn leaves in the stiff October breeze. It’s the scuff of warm boots on bleak cement sidewalks. It’s the rustle of scarves and coats and beanies pulled on to shield from the settling cold.

It’s the sound of pumpkin spice season.

Come on, admit it: We all like to chuckle to ourselves about the pumpkin spice latte obsessives. But there’s something about warmly spiced pumpkin-flavored treats and cozy baked goods that is just downright appealing.

Well, luckily, you can make all your favorite pumpkin spiced treats in the comfort of your own home. What’s more, we bet that with our Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice, they’re going to be even better than what your local coffeehouse or bakery will offer.

Take these Pumpkin Spice Muffins, for example, which are bolstered not only with creamy pumpkin puree but also with a heaping helping of our pumpkin pie spice. This simple mixture invites the warm and cozy autumnal flavors of a cool fall day in a single tip of a teaspoon or two.

And it’s really this easy: All you need to do is combine 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of ground ginger, ½ teaspoon of ground nutmeg, and ½ teaspoon of ground allspice.

So get mixing!
