How to make pumpkin spice
If you do not have access to store-bought pumpkin spice, you can easily make your own. You will need the following spices for this pie.
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp clove
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ginger
  • 1/8 tsp all spice
How to Freeze Pumpkin Pie 
Once baked, cool the pie completely. If freezing, the pie must be 100% cool before wrapping. Wrap the pie in many layers of plastic wrap followed by an extra layer of foil to prevent freezer burn, or odors from seeping in.
I do not advise you to store your pie or any baked goods near frozen onions, fish or garlic. These offensive smells will make your pie taste AWFUL--been there, done that! 
How to Thaw a Pumpkin Pie
Remove extra aluminum foil layer from the pie, and place the pie on a plate in the fridge until thawed. This can take 8-12 hours. 
Once pie is thawed, microwave to heat until warmed. 
Add whipped topping & enjoy.
