Pumpkin Pie Spice

A simple mixture of spices but a very handy one especially when baking anything pumpkin is the intimidating pumpkin pie spice.Well intimidating for me that is. In my short time working in the kitchen and especially in baking i have found this spice mixture to be one that i could never bring myself to's so Expensive!! but i didn't think i could make it myself either. So there i was with the problem of not being able to bake anything that required it, Until now. When i came across the Pumpkin Pie Empenada's recipe, i knew i had to make them and since my desire to try them was greater than my fear of making my own spice mixture, i pushed past that fear and made this mixture. I hope you find it as useful as i have!
