This spice mix will help you bake your way through the Fall!
I have a feeling that you'll be making good use of this Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix all season long. I know that I will! The warm, fragrant spices are perfect for all of your Fall baking needs (and then some).
It's that time of year again!
You know what time of year I'm talking about. Love it or hate it, it's here. Please don't fight it.
(And yeah, yeah, I know that Fall doesn't actually start until September 23rd this year. But it's September. It's time. Sue me.)
It's time for PUMPKIN SEASON!
During this time of year, I fully embrace my inner Basic Bitch by sipping Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks and baking up lots of pumpkin-based treats. This spice mix has our backs when it comes to all of the baking.
How do I use this spice mix?
Hoo boy. Where do I start?
Basically any pumpkin-based baked good is going to require pumpkin pie spices. Check out these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Blondies, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins, and Pumpkin Waffles, for starters. But really, search "pumpkin" on this site for many more.
I've even shared a pumpkin-based cocktail in the past! While this Pumpkin Bourbon Shrub (as currently written) doesn't call for all of the spices included in this spice mix... you could totally add this pumpkin pie spice to the shrub and things would be delicious.
How does this spice mix come together?
It really could not be simpler. It's kind of silly to even call this a "recipe", really.
But, basically, you mix a variety of spices together, use them immediately, and/or store them for later in an airtight jar.
That's it. You got this.
So, what inspired this recipe?
It's not like ready-made pumpkin pie spice mixes are a new idea, by any means. But, basically, Fall baking was the impetus for finally mixing up my own spice mix. If you're planning to bake anything that involves pumpkin, you'll be using pumpkin pie spices.
- 4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- 1 tsp ground cloves
- ½ tsp ground nutmeg
- Mix all of the spices together.
- Use immediately or store in an airtight container for later.
Scale the amount of spices up if you'd like to make a big batch of Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix.
Will I need anything special to make this spice mix?
Truthfully, not much. But check these out:
- I'm storing my spice mix in one of these cute Weck jars
- Measuring spoons to measure out the spices
- You'll also need ground cinnamon;
- Some ground ginger;
- Some ground cloves;
- And some ground nutmeg
