pumpkin pie spice

         . . . this week's charming find!   

Pumpkin Pie Spice is not a new find, but it made today's charming find because of it's wonderful, warm flavor and versatility.  
I don't know about you, but Fall is the time of year when I replace baking ingredients like baking soda and baking powder with new ones.   
Since I bake more in the Fall and winter, than any other time of year - I want fresh ingredients and spices. So along with new cans of baking soda and baking powder ~ I buy a new jar of Pumpkin Pie Spice.   
If you're a baker, then I'm sure you have this Fall spice in your cupboard! A blend of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and all spice ~ pumpkin pie spice not only tastes wonderful in pumpkin pie and pumpkin breads, but also tastes amazing in or on . . . 
  ice cream 
protein shakes
Greek style yogurts
quick breads
pancakes & waffles
spice cookies
sprinkled on oatmeal, 
cream cheese frosted cupcakes and cakes, 
hot chocolates and ciders . . .
the list goes on and on . . . 

So . . . find a spice shaker (maybe one that's shaped like a pumpkin, or other Fall-themed item or color), fill it with this lovely spice, and then leave it on your counter-top so that you remember to use it. 

 I promise you a delightful treat!

Oh ~ a jar of Pumpkin Pie Spice also makes for a 
great hostess gift or party favor!
Don't forget to attach a card with a list 
of all the ways you can use it!
