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.
