Yielding craze for pumpkin pie spice I made my own syrup. Great for coffee drinks, waffles and pancakes and ice-cream too. It’s looks and feels a little slimy because of pumpkin puree, but taste is good. I used my Pumpkin Pie Spice mix (recipe following) and homemade pumpkin puree. Recipe adapted from Rodal News.
