Isn’t it annoying when you’re halfway through a recipe and you realize you’re missing a key ingredient?

Or am I the only one that happens to? Do most people actually check these things before they start baking? Probably.

That would be the logical thing to do.

But, well, I often just start making my chocolate chip pumpkin bread, assuming that I have everything I need, and then discover that I’m out of pumpkin pie spice.

How do I make my own pumpkin pie spice?

Making your own pumpkin pie spice is as simple as mixing a few spices together that you probably already have in your pantry. Pumpkin pie spice is simply a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and cloves. Mix some up and store it in an airtight container so that you have it ready to go when you’re baking.

What spices are in pumpkin pie spice?

I’ve seen pumpkin pie spice with either 4 or 5 ingredients in it. Some recipes omit the cloves and are just a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice. I like having cloves in my pumpkin pie spice too, but if you aren’t a fan of the taste of cloves, you can leave it out.
