How to Make Pumpkin Pie Spice

This spice mixture can be used in your pies, milkshakes or ice cream recipes.  It is a very simple recipe that can be doubled or tripled for later use.  After you have combined everything, place in a tightly sealed jar, not plastic bag.  Glass is the best way to store any spice, herb or condiment.

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons Cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
Put all the above ingredients in a coffee grinder and mix together thoroughly.  The cloves and the nutmeg are best freshly ground.  When adding this to a milkshake, add 1 teaspoon.  For a liter of ice cream mixture double this or add in 2 teaspoons.  You of course can adjust to your particular taste.
