Pumpkin Pie Spice – a homemade version of the classic fall spice called for in recipes. No need to buy it separately you probably have all the ingredients in your spice rack already!
We have all been there, we start a recipe and then realize we are out of an ingredient or don’t have something it called for. When it comes to fall baking a lot of times that is pumpkin pie spice. But no need to worry, this homemade spice blend takes 2 minutes to make and you can continue baking that Pumpkin Crisp!
Homemade pumpkin pie spice uses spices you probably have on hand already, so you can mix it up in seconds and just store a jar in your spice rack at all times.
Pumpkin Pie Spice Ingredients
- Ground Cloves
- Ground Nutmeg
- Ground Ginger
You really just want to make sure your spices are still good. They don’t really good bad as it get moldy, but they lose their potency over time. So if you can smell them well when you open them up, they are probably good. If you have had them for years, it is probably time to toss them and start over.
How To Make Pumpkin Pie Spice
- Add all of the spices to a small bowl and then use a small whisk or fork to combine and make sure they are well blended.
- Then you can simply measure out whatever you need for a recipe!
This makes enough for a few uses, but if you bake a lot with pumpkin and fall recipes you can double or triple this and it will easily last for awhile! Alternatively, you can cut the recipe in half if you only need a little bit and won’t use it more than just a couple of times.
This will store just like any other spices that you have in your cupboard. Put it in an airtight container and then store for 6-12 months. Depending on how fresh your spices were when you started, will really determine how long it is going to last for.
How Much Pumpkin Pie Spice To Use
This is a straight 1:1 substitution for the store bought spice blend. So if you are making a recipe and it calls for 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice, you will use 1 teaspoon of this spice blend.
