Forget about buying pumpkin pie spice. It's easy to make, and you probably already have everything that you need.

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Total Time: 2 minutes


  • 4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground allspice


Mix all the spices together, and store in an airtight container.

Need just enough pumpkin pie spice for one recipe? Combine 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ginger, 1/8 tsp nutmeg and 1/8 tsp allspice to create one teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice. Double or triple this recipe to get to the amount that you need.

pumpkin pie spice, Member pioneergirl67

This is a great idea if you are going to use this often but for some, it is more cost effective to buy the one small jar of pumpkin pie spice. If I purchase the nutmeg and ginger seperately, it will go bad before I can use it all up.
