For me, pumpkin spice a nearly spiritual experience. I can’t go down to the local grocery store spice aisle and just pick up any ol’ bottle off the spice rack.

Some of this Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe lays on a cutting board with a small wooden spoon ready to scoop some up. A bottle of cinnamon lays on it's side in the background.

No… I need my pumpkin spice to transport me through October with visions of pumpkins, hay rides and bon fires. I need my pumpkin spice to stand strong on it’s aroma alone, not to mention having a deep and very rich flavor.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Phyllis – Awww, thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. This sounds so good. You should do an apple pie spice also!!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Lauren – Working on it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Hooray, now I can continue to enjoy pumpkin spice coffee! At least, I think I can…I think I should just sprinkle it over a freshly poured cup? I’ve recently started trying to eat clean and just this morning sadly put down the bag of pre-pumpkin-spiced grounds after reading, “artificial flavors.” This will make mornings much more appealing ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Molly – No, I wouldn’t sprinkle it in. What type of coffee maker do you have? Paper filter? French press?

  4. It’s a (cone-shaped) paper filter one ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Molly – Then I would just mix the spice in with the coffee grounds. Enjoy!

  5. Dyenna Schedgick says:

    Awesome!! I’ve been revamping my spice cabinet with my own ‘clean’ spices and this is one of the spices I needed to make – can’t wait to try it. Thank you!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Dyenna – My pleasure! I hope you enjoy it. ๐Ÿ™‚
