The main component of Pumpkin Pie Spice is cinnamon. Other common ingredients include ginger, nutmeg, cloves, all spice and mace. Pumpkin Pie Spice is often sold pre-mixed in stores but can be made at home with the right ingredients and instructions.
It’s easy to make your own Pumpkin Pie Spice from scratch. Here are the ingredients needed:

Hello, everyone! Welcome to my blog. I’m going to write a post on how to make pumpkin pie spice from scratch. It’s really rather easy, and you’ll feel great knowing that you made it yourself.
We’re not talking about something difficult here, or something that only a professional could do (like making an atomic bomb). Pumpkin pie spice is one of those things that is amazingly easy to make at home – and homemade pumpkin pie spice is amazing in its own right!
I’ve been making my own pumpkin pie spice for years now, and I love it. It’s so much better than anything you can buy in the store – since it’s so fresh, it tastes so much better. Plus, the smell of freshly-ground spices is incredible!
I’m sure you’re wondering what the ingredients are; after all, there are many variations on pumpkin pie spice mixes out there. The most common list includes ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and allspice. However, some recipes will also include mace (or macis). The difference in taste between pumpkin pie spiced with mace versus those without mace is subtle but noticeable – and I personally prefer the flavor of pumpkin pie spiced with mace over those without it
The first one is a pumpkin pie spice mix.
Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
Mix together and store in an airtight container. It should keep for up to a year. Use 1 teaspoon per pumpkin pie. If you prefer, you can buy pumpkin pie spice at the grocery store or online. It is still much cheaper to make your own. The second one is a plain pumpkin pie recipe that uses the homemade pumpkin pie spice mix from above as well as some other ingredients. Pumpkin Pie Recipe (without a mix) 1 15-ounce can pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling) 2 eggs 3 large egg yolks 3 cups half and half* 1 cup sugar 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon salt * You can use milk instead of the half and half if you like, but you will have to reduce the amount of sugar accordingly. In this case I would recommend 2 cups milk plus 2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed into the milk before adding it to the rest of the ingredients. Preheat oven to 425F degrees. Bring half and half (or milk) to simmer in

In the corner of the kitchen cabinet I keep the little bottle of Pumpkin Pie Spice. The label says it is a mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and allspice. Every year I buy it knowing that I will never use it. I hate to admit this but I do not like pumpkin pie so I have never baked with this spice mix.
