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.
What is in Pumpkin Pie Spice
This homemade spice mix is simply a combination of ground cinnamon, and 4 other basic spices: ginger, nutmeg, cloves and allspice.
yields 4 Tablespoons
1 ½ Tablespoons ground cinnamon
1 Tablespoon ground ginger
1 ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 ½ teaspoon ground cloves
½ teaspoon ground allspice
What is in allspice spice?
Allspice is the dried brown berry of the tropical Pimenta dioica tree and tastes like a mixture of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. If you don’t happen to not have it on hand, you can simply mix ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, ½ teaspoon ground cloves, and a ¼ teaspoon of ground nutmeg to make your own spice blend of allspice.
How to Make this Spice Mix
Mix all of the spices together in a small bowl.
Store in an airtight container for up to a year. I used an old small spice container and this recipe filled it perfectly.

Please forgive the public correction but allspice is not a mixture of spices but is its own entity: Allspice is a spice made from the dried berries of a plant known as Pimenta dioica, which is a member of the myrtle family.
Thank you so much for the correction. 🙂

Love the pumpkin recipes you have shared here – and your homemade pumpkin pie spice sounds terrific! Sharing. Thank you for being a part of the Hearth and Soul hop, Sherri.
Great idea! I’ve never tried making my own, but I will now. thanks for sharing with SYC.
Thanks for the pumpkin spice recipe. I could never use the premade mix because I am allergic to ginger. Now I will make my own, leaving out the ginger.
Sherri….It’s time for some pumpkin! Thank you for the spice recipe and for sharing it with Monday’s Musings readers. Have a great week. 🙂
Oh, yes! I’m getting ready for the pumpkin fare myself. Every. single. year. I mix up all of the various spices in pumpkin recipes. NO MORE! I’m whisking up a batch of this for this year and saving a pile of time. Thanks for sharing. Pinning.
thanks for this! I really wanted to make my own for ages now!
So great that someone finally explained what’s in Pumpkin Spice! As a person who’s never been to America I’ve always wondered … and assumed it had pumpkin in it. Yum!
I hate to spend money on all those pre-made spice blends, so this is perfect. Now if the weather here in Mississippi would cooperate, I could really dive in to fall!
I know! We are having a very usually hot September. Not liking it very much.
wow, what a great recipe! Thanks for showing – I’ll try that soon!
