DIY Pumpkin Pie Spice is full of aromatic fall flavors! It’s a delicious homemade spice blend that brings your fall pumpkin recipes to a whole new level!
I’m a firm believer that everything is better homemade. That is so true of this DIY Pumpkin Pie Spice mix. It’s full of delicious aromatic flavor and has brought all of my fall baking to the next level. It’s so worth making this spice blend from scratch. You’ve got to give it a try!
I realized that store-bought blends are very heavy on ground cinnamon. While I love cinnamon, there are so many other flavors that are absolutely key in fall baking. Ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and allspice are all such important fall flavors. They smell and taste incredible – as soon as my kitchen is filled with their aroma, I know fall is here!
I decided to try making my own blend, and I couldn’t be any happier with the result! It’s phenomenal and has made all of my pumpkin recipes such a hit (which is saying something for this girl married to a non-pumpkin loving guy).
Like any spice blend, this recipe is a total breeze to make. Add all of the ingredients to a small mason jar, close the lid, and shake to combine. One batch of this spice blend should be enough to get you through the season.
