📌 What is pumpkin spice?
When I first heard of it, I thought it was a spice that contains an actual pumpkin flavor in it. ...but it's not the case!
In other words, it's called "pumpkin pie spice". So it's a mixture of spices that goes so well with pumpkin pie or any other pumpkin dessert.
I'm not sure if it is sold widely in a lot of countries but here in the states, it is a very popular flavor throughout the fall to the holiday season. Pumpkin desserts and drinks are HUGE around this season.
📌 Frequently asked questions
This depends on the use-by-date of all the spices you used. So check that but if they are new, it's usually good for up to a few years. But! Note that the flavor slowly gets weaker as it sits for a long time.
Yes, they are the same thing. (It might be different in other countries!) Oftentimes in the states, you'll see the spice as pumpkin pie spice at grocery stores.

If you are sensitive to the smell and flavor of cloves, feel free to reduce the amount.

Hi Aya, I love the way you present, and you're so easy to follow.
I'm in the throes of making the Christmas cookie box and used your pastry recipe for mince pies. A favourite with sharp cheese at Christmas.
