My grocery shopping this week was all about stocking up on fall baking essentials.  You know, canned pumpkin, butter, sugar, flour, more canned pumpkin.  I also checked my spice cabinet to make sure I wasn’t running low on anything.  There was no sign of pumpkin pie spice, so I added it to the shopping list…..and then I promptly crossed it off the list!

I tried to remember the last time I bought pumpkin pie spice and for the life of me, I had no idea.  Which is because I don’t buy it, ever.  In the past whenever a recipe has called for it, I just cobbled together a mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and allspice..

So, let’s make each other a promise right now.  Let’s promise that we’ll never ever, ever, ever buy pumpkin pie spice, ever again.  From now let’s make our Pumpkin Pie Spice!  Deal?

Guess what, Pumpkin Pie Spice has just 5 ingredients.  I’m betting you already have all, or at least most of them, in your kitchen.  Go check your spice cabinet, I’ll wait.

Also, this fall spice blend will take you just a couple minutes to whisk together.  Five ingredients and less than five minutes to make, I’m sold!

Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice also makes a fun and thoughtful hostess gift!  Package this fragrant mixture in a cute spice jar – like, this one or this one, get some colorful ribbon, and voila.

Perfect timing! I’m beginning to think of my fall pumpkin/apple recipes and love the idea of making my own spice combo. I could definitely see making up a big batch of this spice mix and using it non-stop. Brilliant idea, lady!

Totally pinned. I was at the store the other day and saw pumpkin spice for $5 and walked by it thinking I can make it myself with what I have. Yep.:) Thank you for posting this so I don’t have to dig around.:)

I use a LOT of pumpkin pie spice! I love the idea of making it myself, because then I can make it extra nutmeggy :) I really just can’t get enough nutmeg

Thank you for this, Kelli! I always see recipes calling for PP spice this time of year and am never sure exactly what to use. Love this!

I am so doing this. I am ashamed to say I buy pumpkin pie spice but seeing that I have all these spices already, I am making it from now on. Promise!

Awesome! I was totally in the same boat. Not gonna lie, one of my favorite parts of making my own spice blends was getting cute spice jars :)

I am so glad to see this. I was wondering what to do with the allspice that I bought after seeing it as one of the ingredients in the Applespice jar. I wished to make it but kept procrastinating. You have made this look so simple. Now I am going to make it.

Great! Making this is just as simple as it looks…promise :)

I totally agree! Most of those crazy spice blends are so easy to make at home and that way you can customize them! Make everyone think you’ve got a secret ingredient.

Exactly! Loving the way you’re thinking!

SUCH a good idea to make homemade pumpkin pie spice! I go through my little bottle of the stuff too quickly during the fall…I add it to everything! Who knew it was so easy to make. Now let’s get baking with those fall recipes ;)

Fall baking is in ful swing and I’m going through this spice blend at an alarming speed :)

I love that I have all of these spices in my pantry already!

You had pumpkin pie spice in your pantry and you didn’t even know it :) Happy fall baking!

Love this! Why should i spend like, SIX DOLLARS on a spice mix that I’ll use only a few times a year…when I have all the spices that make it up in my pantry already! So glad you put together the ratios for us!

Kelli September 17, 2013 at 7:37 AM

Exactly! Although now that I made this blend I’m using pumpkin pie spice waaaaay more than I used to.
