With fall here our thoughts turn to pumpkin..This recipe was given to me by a lady in Georgia who always had a container to give you when you went to visit her. I am also including a homemade pumpkin pie spice recipe I found as well. I don't know about the rest of you, but I refuse to pay the high cost of already prepared spices that i rarely use when i can make my own with ingredients i already have in my pantry.
