You're right in the middle of making Grandma's pumpkin pie recipe, and you realize you're completely out of pumpkin pie spice. Believe me when I say, been there done that.

If you've ever smelled the scent of pumpkin pie seasoning, you can tell it contains something more than just cinnamon and allspice. In fact, if you read the label on a jar of pumpkin spice seasoning, you'll see it contains a few very simple fall spices, including cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves.

5 ingredients and 5 minutes are all it takes to make pumpkin spice mix you can use in all your favorite fall and Thanksgiving recipes.

As long as you store your homemade pumpkin spice blend in an airtight container or spice jar that closes tight, it can last you 2 to 3 years.

WHAT FLAVORS GO WELL WITH PUMPKIN SPICE?

A lot of ingredients pair well with this pumpkin pie spice blend.

Think fall flavors like pumpkin (of course), apple, vanilla, cream cheese, almonds, pecans, walnuts, oats, and more.

WHERE CAN I FIND THE BEST SPICES?

You can find good spices at just about any grocery store, including Walmart.

Personally, I love using Badia spices and seasonings, which I order on Amazon, because all of their single spices are gluten-free (always check labels to be sure). Their spices and seasonings are excellent quality too.

If you want to save money overall, buying in bulk is probably the option for you. Check local health food stores, Whole Foods, etc., because a lot of them will offer bulk spices you can go in and bag yourself. You might also check a bulk food store like Costco or Sam's Club.

And if you want to order bulk elsewhere online, there are many sites that carry spices, like Watkins, Frontier Co-op, and Bulk Apothecary.
