Pumpkin Pie Spice

I realized after I started baking that I didn’t have enough pumpkin pie spice in my cupboard. It was pouring rain outside and I did not want to go to the store to pick up more. After looking through my baking cupboard, I realized I had the ingredients to make my own. Yay!! I combined cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves together and it turned out perfect. I can’t believe it took me this long to make it myself.

  1. I love the idea of making your own pumpkin pie spice! That way you can also play with the recipe and adjust it to your own taste. I know I always use a little less of the premixed pumpkin spice and add a little extra cinnamon…

  2. Way to go with making your own. Not sure there was a thing called Pumpkin Pie Spice when I was growing up but Mom always used her own blend and I loved her pies, especially her delicious crusts.

  3. Perhaps I should try this. We love pumpkin soup and roast pumpkin but so far pumpkin pie has not won its way to our heart. Our own spice miss may help! Keep well Diane

  4. I recently bought some whole nutmeg (which is pretty big) and allspice (which are the size of large peppercorns), and I grate or crush them fresh much of the time. The flavor is remarkable, but it is hard to get the spices small enough to use when baking. I never buy pumpkin pie spice, preferring to use each individual spice, but your mixture does sound appealingly easy! I’m making my pumpkin pies and carrot cake today, chocolate cake and the rest of the pies tomorrow, and Lemon Meringue pie Thursday morning. I hope you guys have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Pam!
