Perfect Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe




Introduction: Perfect Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe

About: I work at instructables by day, and turn into a stitch witch by night. follow me on instagram @jessyratfink to see what i'm working on! ^_^

This pumpkin pie spice actually lives up to its name with loads of warming spices mixed in. In this spice mix I've included cinnamon, ginger, cloves, allspice, nutmeg and cardamom. :D

Pumpkin pie spice isn't something I keep on hand all year round - I tend to just mix it up when I need it! This pumpkin spice seasoning is perfect for pies, quick breads, cookies, or even mixed with sugar and butter to top muffins or popcorn.

Step 1: Ingredients

Spicy pumpkin pie spice:

  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom

This is my favorite! I like a lot of spice in my pumpkin pies. And well, most pies in general. ;)

Mild pumpkin pie spice:

  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon cardamom

If you're not as big on the more intense spices like clove and cardamom, half those amounts and give it a go!

Step 2: Mix It Up and Enjoy!

Pour all of the spices in a glass container and shake until they're well combined! Keep it in a cool area out of direct sunlight and it will stay good for a long long time. :)

    Hi there! I found one of your Instructables, and decided to go through the rest of the ones you have posted, so you may hear from me again (ha)! *Anything* Pumpkin, or Pumpkin Spice, flavored is my absolute favorite, and will be my first choice over any others. But I've never heard of it being used on Popcorn. That sounds amazing! How to you make it, if you don't mind my asking? How much popcorn, butter, and spice - and how do you do it? Do you put the butter on the popcorn like usual, then sprinkle it? Or do you mix them all together and pour over the popcorn? I look forward to your sharing your "recipe"! :)

    I am not a bit concerned about extended shelf life. We are having a heatwave now, but winter is coming. I think a good measure of your Hi-test mix will land in my cocoa. Also the perfect excuse for a visit to Penzeys Spices.
