Fall is in the air which means it’s baking season! Get ahead start on your baking by mixing up your favorite fall spices. It’s so easy to make homemade spice mixes. Plus it’s time to gather up all the wonderful items you’ll need to create those delectable desserts so reminiscent of Autumn in all its splendor! My favorites include pumpkin pie spice ANYTHING and GINGERBREAD!
This spice mix will top many a cup of hot chocolate, chai tea and will add pizzazz and that unique flavor to cakes, cookies, sweet breads, pancakes and more throughout the coming months! Gingerbread spice can be used in place of cinnamon in many recipes.
