Pumpkin Pie Spice

It’s time for all things pumpkin pie spice!! This is a flavor and scent that I cannot get enough of during this time of year. 4 different spices combine to make one amazing spice that you will want to use in ALL your autumn recipes!

This is one homemade ingredient you’ll want to have on hand for all the yummy seasonal pumpkin recipes, like pumpkin cinnamon rolls, pumpkin brownies, and pumpkin cobbler!

What is in it?

Pumpkin pie spice is 4 super rich spices combined into one!

  • cinnamon
  • ginger
  • cloves
  • nutmeg

All of these spices are so good are their own, but when combined they are even BETTER! This is a essential spice to have on hand during the fall/Thanksgiving season.

It is called for in tons of fall recipes. You can use it in classic pumpkin piepumpkin pancakes, pumpkin banana bread, and of course pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. Now I am craving all of those pumpkin treats!!

Pumpkin pie spice sells out super quick this time of year in the grocery stores. Not only does it sell out fast, but it’s pretty expensive! Save yourself the headache and make your own at home! Really easy to do and a lot cheaper.

How to Make Pumpkin Pie Spice

Pumpkin pie spice is the easiest to whip up and have on hand all through the autumn season. You just need 4 spices and 5 minutes of your time. Doesn’t get much simpler than that!

Grab cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger. Measure them out and add them to a bowl. Combine all the spices together until well blended. Keep them in a container of your choice!

STORAGE TIP: I usually just keep it in a little plastic bag and keep it airtight. You can also get a plastic or glass spice container and keep it in there.

Wherever you keep it, make sure to label it with the name and the date you made it, so you know what it is and how long it’s good for. This homemade pumpkin pie spice will stay good for up to 6 months.
