Do you know what’s in the mix for Pumpkin Pie Spice? It’s incredibly simple to make your own with just cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves! I often add a pinch of cardamom for a little something special too.

Have you tried making your own spice mixes? It’s easier than you might think and the possibilities are endless. I was making a batch of pumpkin muffins this morning and realized that I hadn’t shared my Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice here on the blog.

Even more than the fact this is a frugal alternative to those tiny jars of pre-mixed spices, I love that I can vary it according to my preferences.

I’m not a huge fan of clove and allspice, so I keep them subtle. I adore cardamom, so I put a hint of it into this mix. These spices are so fragrant, just opening the jar reminds me of pumpkin pies and warm apple crisps.

The recipe below is for a small batch of the spice mix, however, I typically multiply it to fill a jar. This way you can feel free to play with the smaller amounts and find your perfect combination.

I’ve been making this spice mix for several years now and I use it year round. It’s a wonderful addition to countless breads, and I love it in pancakes, waffles, and oatmeal as well.
