There’s no denying my love for pumpkin spice in the fall, but did you know that pumpkin spice doesn’t actually contain any real pumpkin?!

That’s right, most of your beloved pumpkin spice treats are simply flavored with pumpkin pie spice, not actual pumpkin.

In some cases, both pumpkin spice and real pumpkin are added to recipes together, like in this Pumpkin Chili and these Pumpkin Cookie Cups with Salted Caramel Filling.

You can purchase a tiny little 1 oz container of Pumpkin Pie Spice at the grocery store for $5 or you can mix up a mason jar full of it at home for a fraction of the price!

What is pumpkin pie spice made of?

Pumpkin pie spice is a combination of ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground allspice, ground ginger and ground cloves.

I buy large containers of these spices online, or stock up in the bulk spices section at my local grocery store, to double or triple this recipe. That way I’ll always have plenty of pumpkin spice on hand!

I do the same thing with Homemade Taco Seasoning and French Onion Dip Mix.
