It’s day 4 of Thanksgiving week on the blog and so far this week I’ve shared recipes for Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese, Salted Caramel Pecan Baked Brie and Oven Roasted Turkey with Maple Apple Reduction.

Today, I’m excited to share my new twist on an Apple Crumble, it’s so simple, but really takes this dessert from delicious, to absolute fall perfection! The new twist? Adding pumpkin spice to the crumble!

Pumpkin spice does not actually contain pumpkin, it’s simply the spices combined to make a pumpkin spice mix, which includes cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and allspice.

It’s easy to make a mason jar of homemade pumpkin pie spice and keep it on hand for delicious recipes like this apple crumble!

There’s no denying my love for pumpkin spice in the fall, but did you know that pumpkin spice doesn’t actually contain any real pumpkin?!

That’s right, most of your beloved pumpkin spice treats are simply flavored with pumpkin pie spice, not actual pumpkin.

In some cases, both pumpkin spice and real pumpkin are added to recipes together, like in this Pumpkin Chili and these Pumpkin Cookie Cups with Salted Caramel Filling.

You can purchase a tiny little 1 oz container of Pumpkin Pie Spice at the grocery store for $5 or you can mix up a mason jar full of it at home for a fraction of the price!

White Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Last weekend I was invited to attend a BBQ with a friend… about two hours before the BBQ.  Being a food blogger, it is completely unacceptable to show up to a BBQ empty handed… even when you only have two hours notice!

I was trying to figure out what I had in my pantry that I could toss together that didn’t require a trip to the grocery store. Luckily I had a bag of white chocolate chips and a bag of Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses staring at me from the pantry.

It was one of those moments where you look at two items, a light bulb goes off and you immediately think “the two of you need to meet and become friends!”
