Pumpkin Pie spices-Only cinnamon?
When I was growing up and acquiring a taste for pumpkin pie, it was what my Mom made and she never used pumpkin pie spice or the pumpkin pie filling with all the spices. She only used cinnamon, and that is how I have made mine for years.
When I mentioned it recently to a friend, she thought it sounded odd, and thought that it wouldn't taste 'right' to everyone used to all the different spices.
I've baked and shared many pumpkin pies over the years, and have never had anyone mention the lack of spices or that they didn't care for them with just the cinnamon.
I'm considering baking a couple of pies to take to a function, and now wonder if I need to go buy some pumpkin pie spice. I know if there is any pie leftover, I won't eat it. When I once accidentally bought a can of pumpkin pie mix, I ended up giving it away.
So, does anyone else just use cinnamon?
