How to Make Pumpkin Pie Perfectly
3. Spice It Up
You can buy pumpkin puree already flavored with spices, but we like to flavor our own. Use a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves to make pumpkin pie aficionados swoon. These spices are the essence of pumpkin pie, and when you measure and mix them up yourself, you get better flavor. And those spices that have been in your cabinet for a couple of years? Pitch them. Freshly bought spices will taste better. Some stores offer spices in bulk so you only have to buy as much as you’ll need this year.
