Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice - The Foodie Affair

I’ve been on a roll with some DIY kitchen creations! I have homemade vanilla extract brewing, and today I’m sharing a favorite fall spice blend, pumpkin pie!

The vanilla extract takes some time to fully develop, so you have to be patient and wait for at least 6 weeks before it’s ready to be added to your favorite recipes, but this Pumpkin Pie Spice blend can be used right away!

During the fall, I use quite a bit of pumpkin pie spice. You probably do too, so whisk your spices together and have it ready for all your seasonal baking!

I purchased my spices in bulk so that I could make extra and give them out as gifts like I plan on doing with the homemade vanilla extract.

All my supplies from a local spice company, Monterey Bay Spice Company.

I love the jars. They’re 4 ounce glass jars with a flip lid that can open two ways. You can either use it as a shaker or dip your measuring spoon into the jar. It fits perfectly in my spice drawer!

I used the same label template that I created for the homemade vanilla extract, so after changing the title, printing, then cutting and adhering to the bottles, I had personalized Pumpkin Pie Spice!
