Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe

Sweater weather means homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice, and lots of it. This simple blend of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger is amazing in all your autumn treats, even your morning latte.

Labled pumpkin pie spice ingredients.

Don’t mess with the overpriced bottles of spice blends at the store. I’ve been making my own version for years out of just five ingredients. It takes no time at all; in fact, you might already have everything you need to make pie spice in your cabinet right now.

And it’s not just for pumpkin pie; it’s just as wonderful in apple pie, or sprinkled over French toast, pancakes, or on ice cream with caramel sauce and toasted walnuts for an impromptu sundae. And if you’re the kind of person who counts the days until pumpkin season at the coffee shop, then a DIY pumpkin spice latte is in your future.

The recipe makes enough for a season’s worth of pumpkin pies, cheesecakes, and autumnal desserts.

Instructions:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves.
  2. Transfer to a small airtight container.

Recipe tips and variations:

  • Freshness matters: Especially with ground spices. Buy from high-volume markets or specialty spice shops which are more likely to keep fresh supply on hand.
  • Grind your own: Whole nutmeg is easy to grate if you have a microplane tool or nutmeg grater. Clove, cinnamon, and allspice are easy to grind in an electric spice grinder. However, ginger is usually something you have to buy pre-ground.
  • Storage: Keep in an airtight container in a cool, dry, dark shelf in the pantry. The blend is at its best for 6 months.
  • Gift-giving: Buy spices in bulk and make a big batch. Fill up some cute glass jars and tie a scrap of ribbon around each–instant teacher or mail carrier gifts.
