Once you try homemade pumpkin pie spice, you’ll likely never go back to store-bought! It’s easy to make with spices you already have in your cupboard.

Spices lined up in small white bowls.

I make my own taco seasoning, so I figured I could easily make my own pumpkin pie spice. (Also see my beef stew seasoning, herbes de provence, and curry seasoning mix!)

Making your own seasoning mixes at home saves money and tastes better. You can customize them to your own taste. Many spice mixes have a lot of added salt or preservatives, neither of which I want in my foods.

Also, if you’re like me, you don’t use spices quickly enough, so making your own blends with what you already have in your pantry assures that all your spices will be used while they are still fresh and tasty.

So toss out your old pumpkin pie spice that’s been sitting in your pantry for 10 years and pull out your cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and cloves.

You can use this homemade pumpkin pie spice:

  • for pumpkin pie (duh)
  • for pumpkin cheese cake
  • as a topping for sweet potatoes
  • sprinkled in your coffee (hello pumpkin spice latte!)
  • added to the dry ingredients in pancake or waffle batter
  • stirred into your oatmeal 
Basically it gives anything the perfect little taste of fall.

I like to recycle spice jars to put my new spice mixture in. I write up a quick label, draw a pumpkin on it because I’m a dork (not to mention a terrible artist), and date it. 

Seriously amazing.
