Savor Pumpkin Pie Spice All Season Long

10/31/2014 02:56PM, Published by Wendy Turner, Categories: Family Features Food, Family Features




Fall has arrived, and with it comes the king of all seasonal flavors – pumpkin pie spice.

A versatile blend of comforting ingredients like nutmeg and cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice can flavor a lot more than Thanksgiving pie. Add it to a savory pasta dish, like Fettuccine Pumpkin Alfredo.

“It’s the perfect dish for a chilly night,” said Mary Beth Harrington of the McCormick Kitchens. “Pumpkin pie spice and chipotle chili pepper add a smoky warm taste to the alfredo sauce, which is easily made from canned pumpkin and milk. Bacon is the perfect crispy topping.”

Try these other ideas for using pumpkin spice in everyday favorites:

  • Stir into cream cheese for an autumn-flavored bagel spread.
  • Sprinkle on coffee grinds for an at-home fall-inspired coffee.
  • Mix with nuts and roast for a great party nibble or snack.
  • Blend with canned pumpkin and coconut milk for a delicious smoothie.
