Make Your Own Pumpkin Pie Spice For Baking And Cooking

Pumpkin Pie spice can be quite expensive to buy it.  But do you know you can make your own?

 Make Your Own Pumpkin Pie Spice

4 Tablespoons Ground Cinnamon

4 Teaspoons Ground Nutmeg

4 Teaspoons Ground Ginger

3 Teaspoons Ground Allspice



Mix all together and put into an air tight container.  

I have been making my own now for quite a few years.  I can tell you, making your own is much fresher and costs a lot less than buying it.

  1. You're so smart. I had no idea that's what made up pumpkin pie spice, but now I can make my own for much less.

  2. I discovered the other day I have no nutmeg or all spice. I will be getting them and then making this so I can start cooking the yummy seasonal foods.

  3. Why in the heck haven't I been doing this? Mine is probably really old now anyhow so maybe I'll just dump it out, mix up some fresh and fill it with that. You're a smart cookie!

  5. The Whole Foods near my house actually sells a GIANT container for only a couple of bucks, so I normally buy that one so I don't have to use so many smaller amounts of ingredients. But this blend is a LIFESAVER when you realize you're out of pumpkin pie spice! :)

  18. This is some great information that will save me a lot of money. I have been filing away many pumpkin inspired recipes lately and it would help a lot if I could make some of the ingredients from scratch.

  33. Hi Terry,

    Apologies for my recent absence. Those ingredients seem ideal. If only I could make a real pumpkin pie in England. I mention pumpkin pie here and I get strange looks. Then again, I get strange looks anyway :)
