Pumpkin Pie Spice Ingredients

There’s only a few very simple basic spices in pumpkin pie spice making this one of the easiest homemade seasoning blends to make! I do recommend using quality spices for this recipe to get the best flavor.

Cinnamon – Cinnamon is a warm and aromatic seasoning that you can purchase at any grocery store. It’s the perfect seasoning for Fall for a variety of delicious dishes.

Ginger – Ginger has a slightly spicy, warm flavor that many don’t associate with pumpkin pie, but I promise it adds just the right touch to pumpkin pie spice.

Nutmeg – Another common spice used in Fall recipes, it has a warm and nutty flavor.

Allspice – This commonly known spice boasts a warm, sweet and spicy profile that is often likened to a blend of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Interestingly, this versatile spice is made from the dried, unripe berries of the Pimenta dioica plant. It’s also a lovely spice to have on hand for many recipes and used in a variety of different dishes.

Storing Seasoning Blends

To store homemade seasoning blends, I highly recommend using a mason jar and adding a label. Mason jars are perfect for storing homemade seasoning blends as they are airtight and allow you to see how much you have left. Store at room temperature with your other spices and seasoning blends for up to 2 months.

While this recipe makes a delicious and perfectly balanced pumpkin pie spice, there are a couple of ways to change it up to suit your personal preference.

If you like the flavor of cloves in your Fall inspired baked goods and recipes, feel free to add 1/2 teaspoon or so of ground cloves. However, it is not necessary if you do not care for cloves.

If you prefer a less cinnamon flavored pumpkin pie spice, feel free to reduce the amount of cinnamon to suit your individual preference as well.
