You run to the cupboard and you are out of pumpkin pie spice!
Then panic sits in. It is pumpkin spice season what am I going to do?
But you don’t need to panic you probably already have all the necessary ingredients to create the mix yourself.
I ran out of pumpkin pie spice over the holidays, and yes panic did sit in. Looking through my spice cabinet, I knew I already had the ingredients to make pumpkin pie spice at home. I decided to mix some up and keep on hand for whenever I wanted to use some in my recipes. Which is like all the time during the holidays. I enjoy making dishes all year round with pumpkin pie spice. Try these baked oatmeal bars with pumpkin pie spice instead.

Why is it called Pumpkin Spice?
These spices are generally used to make pumpkin pie. It is a mixture of usually cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. This creates the unique pumpkin spice flavor we all love and compliments pumpkin perfectly.
This small batch makes enough to spice for just one pie. Trust me, you will need this easy recipe when you look in the cupboard and you discover you have run out. Go ahead and Pin it now and save it for the holidays.
I like to double or triple this recipe when I am making it. Then I store it in air tight container. You can use this to make my pumpkin pie creamer, pumpkin pie doughnuts or use for these pumpkin cookies.
Who says pumpkin pie spice is just for the holidays? Try adding some of this to a tub of whipped cream or 8 oz of cream cheese for a wonderful simple dip. Take a look at my yogurt recipes you can’t buy at the store for a pumpkin pie yogurt that is awesome.
