Spicy Pumpkin Pie
When I call my pie Spicy, I mean it in the literal and not figurative sense...  here's what I put into my pies:

a lot of spice!

4 different cinnamons, 2 different nutmegs, mace, allspice, ginger and cloves.  The pumpkin puree is really that bright an orange, too.

Whee! :D

Interesting...(but at least you aren't adding "ghost peppers" :-)).

That's... a lot of spices! D:

I'll guess you don't actually empty out the bottles into the puree. :)

Cassia and Cinnamon...

Cinnabon uses 5 different cinnamons, by the way....

The Tung Hing Cassia cinnamon is pretty light in flavor, the Korinje Cassia is very earthy, the Vietnamese Cassia is richer than store-bought cassia (the hard sticks they dub cinnamon).
... the Ceylon True Cinnamon, of course is a different beast altogether with complex floral notes.

The West Indies Nutmeg is a brighter flavor than the East Indies Nutmeg, which is very strong and usually needs less than a recipe asks for. Mace, of course, is only faintly like nutmeg even though they come from the same plant, and it adds a brightness in color to the chestnut-sienna-tan-burnt ochre brown spice blend.

Re: Cassia and Cinnamon...

A Cassia and a true Cinnamon surely are drastically different, I'm not super-convinced about the others but. I'll trust your pie stylings. :)
