Blend your own Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice! Ditch the store-bought jars, and make your own pumpkin pie spice blend.
It will keep in an airtight container ready for whenever you want to use it! Use it in everything that calls for a little Pumpkin Spice, or add it to a favorite recipe.
I use this jar of pumpkin pie spice all through Fall (also known as “Pumpkin Season” in my house). A teaspoon of pumpkin pie spices adds a little Fall flavor to pretty much everything!
Homemade Pumpkin Spice Mix
There’s nothing wrong with store-bought pumpkin spice. I have plenty of spice aisle blends in my spice rack, for good reason. They’re convenient, of course. As with most convenience products, I really enjoy making my own spice blends where possible. Controlling what goes in (and what doesn’t) is the best part!!
Oftentimes, I’ll see a recipe calling for Pumpkin Pie Spice, which can easily be bought at the grocery store, but as with my own spice blends like Cajun Seasoning, Tuscan Seasoning, Poultry Seasoning & Taco Seasoning, I figured if I can make those, I can make this too!
I hope you enjoy this easy recipe. I make a full batch every Fall, (sometimes two) to get me through the baking season! This is a wonderful Fall spice that lends itself very well to pretty much everything!
I do have a homemade pumpkin pie recipe, they’re actually minis (so I can eat 4 and consider it “balanced” and ignore the fact that I add whipped cream to each one)

Gather the ingredients (ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground cloves, ground nutmeg and ground allspice) and measure them out. Blend together in a small bowl and then store in an airtight jar.
Play around with your ingredients. If you really hate the taste of allspice, leave it out! Dial up or down the nutmeg – it really depends on what you love. You get to pick how much or how little of the individual spices used. This is just my own blend.
