Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice
Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice is the perfect blend of warm spices for amazing pumpkin pie, oatmeal, lattes and so much more!
I don’t normally post on Fridays, but I’ve been wanting to get this Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice to you for some time now because you need it for your fall baking!
I don’t know how many times I’ve gone to do some fall baking and realized that I’m fresh out of pumpkin pie spice.
Talk about a baking catastrophe.
That won’t ever happen again because now I know how to make my own pumpkin pie spice blend with spices that I always have on hand.
Pumpkin Pie Spice
Pumpkin pie spice is as essential for baking with pumpkin as the pumpkin itself, so it’s important to have some on hand all season long.
This Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice yields a whopping 7 tablespoons of pumpkin pie spice, which is good because I tend to add extra spice to my recipes for even more warm, cozy fall flavors.
Pumpkin pie spice is great for so much more than just pumpkin pie! Be sure and try it in the recipes below:
What spices are in pumpkin pie spice?
Typically pumpkin pie spice includes cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice and cloves. If you like your pumpkin pie spice with cardamom, you can certainly add anywhere from 1-2 teaspoons to this recipe to change it up.
Not all pumpkin pie spice is created equally, which is why I decided to make my own. I found myself doctoring up the store bought brands with more of the spices that I felt were lacking.
I prefer pumpkin pie spice to be big on cinnamon and very minimal on nutmeg. I add a little extra ginger to provide a nice kick, and enough allspice and clove to provide a deep, bold flavor.
