Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend

No pumpkin pie spice blend in the cupboard? This simple mixture of four other pantry spices can save the day!


  • 1-1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Cloves


  • Combine the cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves.
  • This combination will equal 1 tablespoon of pumpkin pie spices to use in recipes.


Idea to use this spice blend in a pumpkin pie:  
Combine a 15 oz can of pumpkin, a 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk, 2 eggs, and the 1 tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice blend. Place in a 9" unbaked pie shell and bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350 degrees and back for 40 more minutes.
