This homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice recipe is so easy to make with simple spices you already have in your spice cabinet. It’s perfect for all your fall baking.
I love making homemade spice blends and my own blends os seasonings to have on hand. It’s frustrating when you want to make a recipe and go to find out that you are out of it. This homemade taco seasoning is our favorite go-to DIY seasoning and this homemade Greek seasoning is amazing too!

Whenever I used to go into full pumpkin season baking mode, pumpkin pie spice never seemed to be in my pantry. Having to buy a that little jar of pumpkin pie spice mix from grocery stores several times a season gets old quick. Plus, making this simple recipe is so much cheaper too.
Once I found out that only a handful of common spices are needed to make it from scratch, I decided that I would make a big batch of my own pumpkin spice mix since so many of my favorite fall recipes call for it.
It’s so easy to make and you will always have the best pumpkin pie spice alternative the next time a one one your holiday baking recipe calls for it. Or if you’re like me, you may just want to add a dash of it to a cup of coffee or tea for a little extra, delicious flavor any time of year.
