    MailbagMary's Note:

    In Portland, Oregon there was a restaurant called the Hillvilla. It was most famous for it's pumpkin pie. When the baker Eddie Palaske died, this recipe was posted in the Oregonian in his obituary, he was so well known for it. The special seasoning for this pie is different, but makes the best pumpkin pie that I have ever eaten, and when I make it for holidays, it gets rave reviews! I have not used any other recipe for over 25 years! I am sure you will love it! The time listed to prepare does not include cooking time.

      After all the great reviews decided to try it to take to a Thanksgiving dinner - followed recipe exactly but definitely had to bake for an extra 15 mins. The spice mixture is excellent but did tone down the black pepper - unfortunately we do not like the texture of the pie. It is probably just a little too firm (or not creamy enough) for our tastes. I am afraid I will go back to my regular one "Kyle's pumpkin pie" on this site.....sorry but very disappointed. I am glad so many people found it to their liking.

      I had to try this recipe given the story that comes with it. I'm glad to have tried this pumpkin pie recipe! My daughter baked pies from the Libby's label and pies from this recipe. She served both side by side and hands down, this recipe was the favored one. I toned down the Hillvilla spice though (using a teaspoon instead) since my family doesn't like alot of pepper and the recipe turned out well.

      Best pumpkin pie I have ever made! I put stevia (18 packets) instead of the sugar and but still used the brown sugar. I ate the whole thing myself! (My family doesn't like pumpkin pie.) So good I was thinking about making another one!
