Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix Recipe


This shortcut spice mix is often called for in quick pumpkin pie recipes, but it is also good in savory baked pumpkin or squash recipes, cookies, sweet potato pie, custard, cheesecake, and more. It combines four basic spices: cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice berries (not the spice mixture - see Note)
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg


Blend cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg together until evenly mixed.

Recipe may be doubled or tripled. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for up to 6 months.

Yield: 1 teaspoon

Note: Use the ground allspice berries. There is a commercial general mix called "all spice" which combines several spices much like this pumpkin pie spice mix. Check the tin to be sure it is not a mixture.
