Save yourself time and money by easily making your own Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice! All you need is 4 common spices and you’re well on your way!
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 more baking necessities. Fall marks 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 but it will also save you money.
Not to mention, homemade is always better than store-bought.
To Make Homemade Pumpkin Spice You Will Need:
- ground cinnamon
What Are The Best Spices For Making Your Own Seasonings and Spice Blends?
There’s no right or wrong brand. I will first say, buy what you can afford. However, not all spices are created equal as you tend to get what you pay for. Currently I use Morton & Bassett (not sponsored) because I find their spices to be top notch in texture, color and flavor. I love and respect what their company stands for not only with charitable work but also quality control. With that said some other wonderful brands I’ve used over the years are Simple Organic, Frontier Co-op and Penzys.
In a small bowl, measure and add 2 tablespoons of cinnamon, 2 teaspoons both ground nutmeg and ground ginger along with 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.
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.
