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.

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!)

Doing it at home saves money and tastes better. Also, if you’re like me, you don’t go through spices too terribly quickly, so this assures that you use what you have and that all your spices will be fresh and tasty.

So toss out your old pumpkin pie spice and pull out your cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and cloves.

You can use this homemade pumpkin pie spice mixture:

  • for pumpkin pie (duh)
  • for pumpkin cheese cake
  • as a topping for sweet potatoes,
  • sprinkled in your coffee (hello pumpkin spice latte!)
  • thrown in pancake or waffle batter
  • stirred into your oatmeal
  • for the recipe I have coming for you Friday
Basically it gives anything the perfect little taste of fall.
 
Updated to add….try it in these recipes:

I finished off a jar of cinnamon while making this, so I threw my new spice mixture in that jar. Didn’t even have to wash it! Bonus! I wrote up a quick label, drew a pumpkin on it because I’m a dork (not to mention a terrible artist), and dated it.

Stay tuned, I have an amazing recipe coming for you to use this spice mix in!

Seriously amazing.
