Enjoy this homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe. I love any recipe with a pumpkin and most of the recipes that have pumpkin in them call for pumpkin pie spice. So here is a recipe for how to make pumpkin pie spice with spices you probably already have in your pantry. If not you can pick these up at the dollar store or grocery store and use them for other recipes. I know I always have the 4 spices needed to make this in my cabinet at all times. I don’t always have pumpkin pie spice but I do have these. So, if you find yourself in this boat you can make your own.
My Kroger doesn’t sell pumpkin pie spice year round. I asked and they told me they consider it a “seasonal ingredient”. My Kroger only has it on the shelf in the Fall and Winter seasons. Does your store carry pumpkin pie spice all the time? If not just make your own. It is a great way to save money because in general investing in the four basic spices are a better way to save money. You can use these again in other recipes and when you need a blend you can simply make it yourself. I hope this kitchen tip saves you both time and money. Make your own Pumpkin Pie Spice when you find yourself in need of a substitution.
To make this recipe you need 4 teaspoons ground ginger, 3 teaspoons ground allspice, 4 tablespoons ground cinnamon and 4 teaspoons ground nutmeg.
