Sweetened condensed milk is what gives this pumpkin pie its silken texture. When mixing ingredients for the filling, mix just enough to combine thoroughly. If bubbles form, it is time to stop mixing.

I have been making this pie for years and my family loves it! I make this pie for my son's birthday because he loves it so much. It is easy to make and so creamy. We love the taste. This is the only pie I will ever make!

We truly enjoyed the pie and was impressed that a little change can make a difference. As for the person who doesn¿t know when to add the butter. Really? Mistakes are made every day in typing, etc. If you couldn¿t understand that the word ¿better¿ was mistyped for butter then you didn¿t need to make the pie anyway.

Great. Substituted milk and sugar for condensed milk. Made the pie creamy and delicious beyond words. the pie did not last the day.

Presumably "better" is "butter" ..    I started to make it and realised  there were no insturctions when to add the "butter"
