Soul Food Saturday

With Holiday time comes all things pumpkin. Including coffee! How many times have you craved a big as they come, full cup of this favorite coffee house specialty and not been able to get away for one? For me it's more often than I'd like to think about. It seems I can never have enough. And truthfully the grocery store creamers are good but they don't quite hit the spot for me. So here I have a treat as well as a gift. A new version of this delight, made right in your kitchen.

Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer
2 c. Sugar
2 c. Water
1/4 c. Pumpkin puree
2 cinnamon sticks
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

In a medium sauce pan add all ingredients and stir to combine. Cook for approx 10  minutes, stirring frequently. Strain mixture through fine mesh strainer, twice. Chill
Mix 1 to 2 tbs. of syrup with coffee and warm milk to taste.
Finish with whipped cream and pumpkin spice if desired. Enjoy
