Save yourself time and money by making your own Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice! All you need is 4 ingredients and you’re good to go.

Homemade Pumpkin Spice

This is the time grocery stores start socking up with extra baking supplies. I always get a little giddy when I walk into our local store and see they added an extra shelve for extra baking necessities. Fall is the official kickoff to baking season and I won’t lie and say that I don’t feel the excitement of it all.

If you do one thing this fall, make your own pumpkin pie spice! Making your own blend not only gives  you the opportunity to use spices in your pantry and it will also save you money. Not to mention, homemade is always better than store-bought.

Homemade Pumpkin Spice

Making homemade pumpkin pie spice is ridiculously easy. I see no reason why anyone would buy the prepared kind when you can make it yourself in seconds. You can play with spices, like adding a smidgen of clove or maybe cardamom or cayenne for a little back-of-your-throat-kick. The sky is the limit and here is a good base to go from.

To Make Homemade Pumpkin Spice You will Need:

  • ground cinnamon
  • nutmeg
  • ginger
  • allspice

Homemade Pumpkin Spice

In a small bowl, measure and add  2 tablespoons of cinnamon, 2 teaspoons nutmeg and ginger and 1-1/2 teaspoon of allspice. Feel free to add any of the mentioned additional spices that I mentioned (clove, cardamom or cayenne) for a fun adaptation. Stir or whisk, breaking up any clumps.

That’s it. Store the spice in a small container with a tight-fitting lid and mark “homemade pumpkin spice” in a cool dry place.
