Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice




Pumpkin season……….ohhh how I love thee. Growing up in Oklahoma, I missed out on an actual fall season as we didn’t really get one. Now that I am in Michigan I get to enjoy all four seasons, although, I wouldn’t mind skipping part of winter sometimes.

I just love this photo. I am trying to work through the settings on the dslr I purchased. This is from my cousins pumpkin patch.

Tis the season for pumpkins! I’ve had my fair share of fun with pumpkins this month and I have been working hard behind the scenes to prepare some new posts for you guys. I’ve been using an alarming amount of Pumpkin Pie Spice for my Pumpkin Butter and I find myself spending a lot of time reading the ingredients to make sure their isn’t a bunch of junk hidden in there.

Did you know if you don’t have Pumpkin Pie Spice on hand you can make your own?

Grab a cute quart canning jar and mix all of these ingredient in there and give it a good shake. Or, you can also use an old shaker container that has been emptied. I tend to save a few of mine here and there for homemade spices.

1 container of cinnamon (2 0z)

1 oz of nutmeg

1 oz of ginger

1/2 oz of allspice

You can also change these OZ around to your tastes. I change mine up all the time. This is just a simple guideline.


Please let me know how it turns out for you.

    Can you please make me some and send it to me? I swear, I always ruin stuff like this when I try to make it….but I do love me pumpkin ANYTHING!

    1. It is! I hate that. The last time I was in Kroger I was looking for it and it was like $5 for this small shaker of it. Most of these ingredients I can find the big shakers at the dollar stores. And then the pumpkin spice goes up this time of year, too.

  2. Seriously? That’s it?! I am so making this tomorrow. I LOVE all things pumpkin and I need this spice in my life. Thank you so much!

    1. I am always ready for fall! When I lived in OK the summers were so hot, over 100 with heat index making it 120 or more. So, I always looked forward to October because thats when it finally starts cooling off. Plus, I lived in a college town and back to school, football, it was all so much fun.

  3. As a Jamaican, we never use pumpkins this way. We use it to make soups. Because of that, I have never opened up my taste to making pumpkin pies and drinks etc. Maybe it’s time I start? 🙂

    THANK YOU!! I needed this. My sister and I have been talking about making our own but didn’t know what all to put in it. This sounds like a way cheaper way especially for all the pies we make around Thanksgiving and Christmas!

    1. It’s so easy. I make giant zip top bags of it because I go through so much every year with the pies, breads, homemade apple butter, the canning I do and even coffee. I just love the fall.
