  • 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon*
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground allspice
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves


  • In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves.
  • Store in an airtight container or bag for up to 6 months. Use as a 1:1 substitute. If the recipe calls for 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, use 1 teaspoon of this mixture.


  • Cinnamon: This recipe cannot be made without cinnamon. See variations below for how to make it without some of the other spices.
  • If the spice mixture is lumpy, use a small sieve. Pour the mixture into the sieve over a bowl and use a spoon to press it through. This should remove any clumps. 
  • Scale the recipe. This recipe can be doubled, tripled, etc. As is, the recipe yields almost 2 Tablespoons.
