There’s just something about the scent of pumpkin pie spice that immediately makes me feel warm and cozy! All of the fragrance from ground cinnamon, all spice, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg mingle together to make for a mighty amazing combination when used in pies, muffins, cookies, and all sorts of other delicious dishes! I use it in so many of my baking recipes, such as my Classic Pumpkin Pie Recipechocolate chip pumpkin bread, pumpkin banana bread recipe and many more! One of my favorite ways to use my pumpkin pie spice is in my homemade Pumpkin Spice Lattes! Needless to say, this is definitely a spice mix recipe that I keep on hand!

How to Make Pumpkin Pie Spice

This delicious pumpkin pie spice recipe could not get much easier. You simply add all of the spices listed in the recipe to a mixing bowl and stir until all of them are well combined.

While this recipe makes the perfect combination of flavors for me and for my family, I’ve found that with any spice mixes, you should use the ingredients and quantities of ingredients based on your personal preferences. The same holds true for this pumpkin pie spice recipe.

While we love cinnamon, we aren’t as fond of nutmeg so I toned down the nutmeg flavor in my pumpkin pie spice. If you love the flavor of nutmeg, feel free to increase the ratio in this recipe. For those that love it, I recommend increasing up to 1/2 tablespoon for the amount of cinnamon included.

Store the pumpkin pie spice mixture in an airtight container for future use in so many delicious recipes!

  1. 5 stars
    This sounds delish. I think it would be good mixed with a can of coconut milk for a coffee creamer. What do you think? I’m going to try it.

  2. Are the nutmeg and cinnamon measurements reversed? You talk about reducing the nutmeg, but in this recipe it is by far the largest ingredient.

    1. The measurements are correct in the recipe. The recipe is for 1/4 cup ground cinnamon and 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg.
