Learn how to make this easy spice blend in five minutes. Pumpkin pie spice is the perfect spice to flavor all your favorite fall cookies, cheesecakes, breads, pies, and more!!
Every year I buy countless containers of pumpkin pie spice, this year I finally just made my own and now I wonder why I made special trips to the store just for this. This spice blend is made with spices I already keep on hand so it literally took me less than five minutes.
Let's get to the recipe
What is pumpkin pie spice
A simple spice blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and allspice. The perfect fall-inspired flavoring for baking desserts like pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake or pumpkin muffins!
For the spice mix you will need:
- Ground Cinnamon
- Ground Nutmeg
- Ground Ginger
- Ground Cloves
- Ground Allspice
I like a heavy cinnamon flavor but feel free to reduce if that isn't your jam.
Some people like to add Cardamom, if so add 1 teaspoon to the mix,
All you have to do is whisk the spices together
Then store them in an air-tight container. This recipe makes two ounces worth of spice so it fits perfectly into a leftover spice jar.
I like to place the spics on a piece of parchment paper then fold the parchment paper to funnel the spices directly into the jar.
Can you double
You can double, triple, half the recipe. Just use the same ratios, or adjust the ratios to your palette.
