Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!  I hope you all have a wonderful holiday!  We are getting ready for the big day today by making all of our pies.  And wouldn't you know it, we are out of pumpkin pie spice.  It's a good thing I have been hanging onto a homemade recipe in my food storage recipe binder.  We made a little batch of homemade pumpkin pie spice in just a few minutes.  

 Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/4 C cinnamon
1 T allspice**
1 1/2 t ginger
1 1/2 t nutmeg
1 t cloves
Mix all until blended and store in an airtight container.  

  The recipe makes enough to fill this 1.2oz container plus about 1 teaspoon.  Use it in your favorite pumpkin pie recipe or wherever pumpkin pie spice is called for.  

We made 2 pumpkin pies (my 11 year actually made most of it!) and we can't wait until tomorrow to dig in!!

Bonus:
Apple Pie Spice
1/4 C cinnamon
2 t nutmeg
1 t allspice**
1 t ginger
Mix all until blended.  Store in an airtight container.

**1 teaspoon Allspice= 1/2 t cinnamon, 1/4 t ginger 1/4 t cloves
