DIY pumpkin pie spice blend - great gift idea!

Pumpkin spice season is in full swing.

One day it was 80 degrees and two weekends later it was cold with mild flooding! It's almost time for the holidays and I'm already thinking about it!

And, I decided this year to finally make my own pumpkin pie spice--and I've been putting it in my coffee every. single. day. since.

I was so surprised to learn, when I looked up recipes, that there are 50 million different ways to make pumpkin pie spice, not just in terms of proportion but also in ingredients!! I figured they'd all have the same spices, but they don't. So I modified this recipe (love The Kitchn!), which is modified from this book, except I didn't use mace, so these ingredients are similar to those in most pie spice recipes, though the proportions are different... I'm rambling.

Plus, the cute spice jar I put it in (and the red and white twine) have made it feel even more festive. If you tucked a jar of this into a gift basket with some cooking tools, cute hand towels, maybe some other ingredients - great hostess gift or simple holiday gift!

(My spice jars are from World Market - out of stock online but these and these are similar.)

And of course pumpkin pie spice is not just for pie!! Plenty of recipes call for it, and you can put it in coffee, cocoa, on top of vanilla ice cream.. insta-festive!

DIY pumpkin pie spice (whole jar recipe)


  • 4 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp allspice
  • 2 tsp ground cloves
  • 2 tsp ground nutmeg


    1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl; mix well.
    2. Spoon, funnel, or pour into a spice jar.

    Makes one jar, about 1/2 cup. Multiply the recipe and use a big bowl to make several batches for gifts! (Store extra batches in the freezer for freshness, or if not using regularly.)

    If you're like me, you have a list of DIY gift ideas started already for the holidays - consider adding this one!
