Homemade pumpkin pie spice just makes me instantly think of Fall. The warm flavours of cinnamon, nutmeg, and all spice are my favourite. Christmas wrapped up in a spice!

Something that is challenging in New Zealand is to find special ingredients like pumpkin pie spice because its not in high demand as it would be in America. So I have made my own mix which I’m sharing with you today.
You might be wondering what you use pumpkin pie spice for. Well let me excite you! You can make pumpkin pie loaf, spiced latte, or my delicious pumpkin pie chocolate chip cookies.
I created my own homemade pumpkin pie spice recipe based on some I found online because I cant buy any in-store to replicate the flavours. You can use this recipe if you too can’t find any in store. Personally I think homemade spices are better than store bought anyway.
Something that I have to admit is that I absolutely dislike the taste of cloves. Traditional pumpkin pie spice calls for this in the recipe but I decided to omit it from mine.
If you don’t mind cloves totally add to your taste. Maybe start off with ½ a teaspoon and see how you like the flavours.
Spice mixes are fun to make because you can easily change them up to suit your families taste needs. When you buy store bought there could be lots of unnecessary additives that you really don’t need to add to your diet.
This recipe will make a small mason jar worth, which will probably last you for fall. Consider doubling the recipe if you do a lot of baking with homemade pumpkin pie spice.
