Measure out and add all of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and whisk together until well combined. Store in an airtight container until you are ready to use (I used a small glass jar). You can even double or triple this recipe and have some leftover for your spice cabinet!
Most people are surprised to learn that there is no pumpkin in pumpkin pie spice mix! By omitting cloves from the ingredients list, you can make your pumpkin pie spice mix taste more like pumpkin pie and less like gingerbread (I tried making it both ways, with and without the cloves, and keeping the cloves in the recipe gives it a little more of a gingerbread aroma…leaving them out reminds me of pumpkin pie).
Homemade pumpkin pie spice mix takes less than five minutes to mix with these few common spices that I’ve listed. You will find yourself using it for fall baking, flavoring your coffee, spicing up your whipped cream and making a fragrant simmering potpourri. You can add a teaspoon to your morning coffee (I did…and it was delicious!), and incorporate it into your pancake mix, french toast, oatmeal, cookies, muffins and cakes.
