Substitute Chinese 5 Spice For Pumpkin Pie Spice

Last night, I found myself making a pumpkin pie and realized I was out of cinnamon AND nutmeg and had no premixed pumkin pie spice. Not wanting to run to the store, I rummaged through my spice cabinet in search of alternatives and found Chinese 5 spice blend.

Chinese 5 spice blend contains Star Anise, Fennel, Cinnamon, Cloves and Pepper. It gave an interesting spicy flavor to the pie which offset the sweetness.

Absolutely, and Five Spice is great on rice pudding too.
