Wow! This looks way too good! Yum!

Nadia says:

The addition of the “spice blend” recipe is confusing. Is this the “pumpkin pie spice” that’s referenced in the first half of the recipe? Are we adding half a teaspoon of that to the pumpkin or all of it? I would like more clarity— I’m concerned that I’ve just mixed another batch of pumpkin pie spice, which I already have in ample supply.

Jacqueline Parisi says:

Hi Nadia – you only need 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice blend! Of course, if you have the store-bought kind, you can use that. We just provided you with the recipe to make your own since it’s so simple! Use 1/2 teaspoon and store the rest for more fall baking fun 🙂

Crystal says:

So I ended having to start from scratch because it wasn’t clear and that spice blend and pumpkin spice were the same. This recipe for spice blend should just be called pumpkin spice blend. Not sure why it’s not.

Susan says:

That seems like an excessive amount of vanilla extract. Is it really one Tablespoon? I don’t think I’ve ever used that much vanilla in a recipe.

Judy Barry says:

How much please per meal on average?

Hi, Jacqueline, thank you for such amazing recipe with us it looks so soothing and simple to prepare will surely try and share how it tasted and will also share it with my friends and family so that they can also share.
