This recipe goes along with the Hillvilla Pumpkin Pie recipe that I just posted. It's the special seasoning that baker Eddie Palaski used for his famous pumpkin pie served at the Hillvilla Restaurant in Portland, Oregon, and was printed along with his obituary in the Oregonian newspaper.

Special is right! I thought I'd try this exactly as written even though the previous reviewer really didn't like the pepper. I'm glad I made a full batch because I'm going to use it in all my sweet pumpkin recipes from now on! I used it in my Spiced Pumpkin Cupcakes and they turned out far more delicious than they ever have with store bought pumpkin pie seasoning. Thanks!!

I would not have believed it possible until I tried this seasoning! It is, without a doubt, one of the best pumpkin pie spices I have ever used! Thank you, thank you, Mary, for posting this gem. Needless to say, I used it to make the Hillvilla Pumpkin Pie. This will stay in my cupboard instead of the bought pie spice. Made for Fall 2008 PAC.
