Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice

...because making your own is more fun than buying it at the store, and you can change it up based on your taste buds.

Love cinnamon? Add more. Hate cloves? Leave 'em out!

Add some cardamom! Add some crushed up Xanax! Just kidding. Don't do that.

Pumpkin Pie Spice
Makes about 3 tablespoons. Can easily be doubled.

(All spices are ground, obviously.)

1 Tbsp allspice
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp ginger
1 1/2 tsp nutmeg
3/4 tsp cloves

Combine everything in whatever container you want (spice shaker, mason jar, sandwich bag, etc.). If your container has a small opening, measure the spices into a small bowl and use a square of parchment paper as a funnel to get it into your container. Close the container and shake it all up.

Ask your significant other to make a label for you, then laugh hysterically when you see it.


Use your spice mix to make things taste autumny, like this recipe for pumpkin mini pies with toasted marshmallow topping.
