Why Should You Make This Spice from Scratch?

You may be wondering, “why in the world would I make pumpkin pie spice from scratch?” and look, I totally get it. Buying pre-made spices like pumpkin pie or apple pie spice is easy and convenient.

However, I am a big believer in knowing how to make your own spice blends. Not only does it save you money, but your homemade blend is often fresher than the pre-made version you buy from the grocery store.

Also, we have all experienced what it’s like to be in the middle of cooking a recipe and be completely out of stock of a spice that you really need. During the fall season, spices like pumpkin pie may also be out of stock more commonly as they are being used more frequently.

When you know how to make your own homemade spice blend, you can never run out. With just a few minutes, and a few spices you likely already have in your pantry, you can whip up your own pumpkin pie spice!

How Do I Make Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice?

Making homemade pumpkin pie spice could not be easier. Once you have gathered all of your spices, just measure them out into a small bowl. Use a small whisk, or fork, to whisk together the spices until they are well combined and that’s it! You have created pumpkin pie spice.

This recipe makes a smaller batch of pumpkin pie spice. If you want to make a larger batch to last you all season long, just double or triple the recipe.

How to Store Your Spice Blend

Store you pumpkin pie spice in an air-tight storage container in your spice drawer or cabinet. Ensuring that the container is air-tight will prevent any moisture from getting into your pumpkin pie spice and causing the spice to clump up.

  1. I made this to use in Ashley’s pumpkin spice late recipe and I am glad I did. Super easy and I will use it a lot. I’m going to use it next in the Gluten Free Banana Pumpkin bread recipe she posted the other day!
