Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe

  • 3 Tablespoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 2 Teaspoons Ground Ginger
  • 2 Teaspoons Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Ground Allspice
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Ground Cloves
  • 1/8 Teaspoon aka “Big pinch” of Cardamom
    • Mix all of your spices into a bowl.
    • Store in an airtight Spice Jar.  I save empty spice jars for my future homemade mixtures.  For this pumpkin pie mix I used a cinnamon jar since the spice is included in the mix. Tip- Do not use one that previously held garlic or any other strong spices, as that will taint your beautiful, aromatic blend!

Happy baking and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
