    Does anyone have a formula for the spice mix used in pumpkin pie? I have been using "Pumpkin Pie Spice" in my pumpkin eggnog cheesecakes and would like to do my own blend.

    This is one I use in a 3 layer pumpkin pie (pumpkin custard on the bottom, whipped cream in the middle and pumpkin chiffon on the top)

    1 tsp ginger
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1/2 tsp all spice
    1/2 tsp nutmeg
    1/2 tsp cloves
    1/2 tsp salt

    Half of this goes in the custard and half in the chiffon so, if you are only doing the basic pie, don't use it all.
