It's time to dust off your little canister of pumpkin pie spice. But wait just a second: its possibilities stretch far beyond baking a pumpkin pie. We like to use it in beverages and take it to the savory side of things with vegetable dishes and simple fall meals. Pumpkin pie spice, a delightful blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves, has a way of taking a rather benign recipe and warming it up immediately. Whether it's starting out the day with a homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte or capping an evening off with Maple and Squash Pumpkin Pie Popsicles, there's a whole world out there beyond pie.
