I use them in everything, like these Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins and for spicing these Paleo Cinnamon Candied Nuts.

How to Make Pumpkin Pie Spice
You’ll need just five common pantry spices to make the Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix – cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and ground cloves.
Collect your spices and add measurements to a small bowl. Whisk until completely combined and there are no clumps.
Place spice mix in a small mason jar or container with a lid.
This mix can be stored in your pantry for several months.
Before using, give the Pumpkin Pie Mix a quick stir to recombine the spices.
Apple Pie Spice Ingredients
Only four ingredients are needed for the Apple Pie Spice Mix – cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and cardamom. Cardamom comes from the ginger family and is optional here, but adds a great depth of flavor to the spice mix.
