What Is In Pumpkin Pie Spice?
Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice is a simple mix of 5 spices that are traditionally used in — you guessed it — pumpkin pie! It consists of varied measurements of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, and mace.
If you don’t have mace (and we’re talking about the ground stuff, not the defense spray or medieval weapon), you can just substitute it for more nutmeg.
How To Make Pumpkin Pie Spice:
And to make sure your homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice stays fresh, check the expiration dates on each of the ingredients and mark the mixture with the soonest date.
This combination of sweet spices can be used in more than just pie. Try adding a sprinkle to your coffee, oatmeal, pancakes, waffles, smoothies, and vanilla ice cream!
Another little tip: a dash of Pumpkin Pie Spice tastes amazing on my Homemade Applesauce, and you can also use it to make this scrumptious-smelling DIY body scrub!
