PUMPKIN PIE SPICE Recipe

Quite some time ago, I was doing some fall baking. My recipe called for pumpkin pie spice, so I dutifully went to the store and bought pumpkin pie spice.

Of course, when I was in the midst of baking I noticed that pumpkin pie spice smelled a lot like some of the other spices I used regularly.

I instantly wondered what is in pumpkin pie spice?

When I looked at the label, I saw cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice. Hmmm… I had all of those things on hand already.

Why, then, would I need to buy pumpkin pie spice if I already had all of the spices in my pantry? Why indeed.

It is crazy to think I have been spending several dollars for a little tiny bottle of this spice mix that hardly lasts any time at all!  I can make so much of this at home for just a fraction of the cost.

From Pumpkin Muffin Recipe  and Easy Pumpkin Chocolate Chocolate Chip Bars to Pumpkin Cookies and Pumpkin Cake. Bring on all things Pumpkin!

So… I made homemade pumpkin pie spice.

Make your own for a fraction of the cost. If you are like me and love all things pumpkin, it is easy to go through this spice quickly.

When I make this at home, I just refill my original bottle. If you are smart and you haven’t wasted your money on store bought pumpkin pie spice (like I did), you can buy these comparably sized spice jars from Amazon.

You can make a couple of batches at once and share some of these jars with friends. Better yet, you can make extra and give these to your baking friends and relatives for Christmas!

  1. Thank you soo much. I was looking for a recipe someone gave me years ago.
    I am about to make the recipe today. I am pretty sure it will be good. Also,
    thank you for the (pumpkin spice).
    I was surprised to see the “organic pumpkin puree” at Walmarts. And so I
    got a can put never used it until now.

  2. 5 stars
    This is another great spice mix I found on Eating on a Dime! I have even added it to (unsweetened) applesauce to jazz it up!
