Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe. We LOVE pumpkin around here. Make your own Pumpkin Pie Spice this year. It's super simple and saves you money too!

It’s fall, which means it’s time for pumpkin everything.  If you’re anything like me, you’ve found yourself bookmarking or printing a number of of mouth-watering pumpkin recipes.  I plan to make and share some soon (like pumpkin cookies, pumpkin pie and pumpkin muffins) :-).

In order to get us all ready for that, and to help you with your pumpkin baking needs, I’m sharing today my recipe for Pumpkin Pie Spice.

Like I shared with you in my post on Do It Yourself – Homemade Seasoning Blends, making your own seasoning blends has several benefits:

  • save money – spice blends cost more than single spices
  • save money – do it yourself instead of making another trip to the store
  • better health – avoid questionable additives and flavor enhancers in some blends
  • save money – buy spices in bulk since you will use them up more quickly
  • family fun – it’s a simple thing your kids can help you with in the kitchen

Well, this Pumpkin Pie Spice recipe is no different.

Around Thanksgiving and Christmas, we tend to make a lot of pumpkin pies.  I have a great healthy recipe (that I promise I will share with you soon) and we love it so much that I bake a whole bunch at once (it tastes great frozen!)  My kids eat it for snacks and even for breakfast (Yes, we eat some funny things for breakfast around here – like bean fudge :-).) Well, when you bake a whole bunch of pumpkin pies at once, you are bound to run out of Pumpkin Pie Spice.  So here is the solution:

 

That’s it!  You are now armed and ready for a pumpkin-baking fest (like I hope to have here soon).  Next up : Yummy Soft Pumpkin Cookies!

  1. I adore pumpkin and this is a lovely pumpkin pie spice mix. It’s going to be very handy this time of year!

  2. I am not a fan of cloves, therefore avoiding pumpkin pie spice! Love fall desserts though, so has anyone made this without the addition of the cloves?
