    The sweetened condensed milk was my Mom's secret to her pumpkin pie.
    I double the recipe and go with 1 can of that and 1 can of evaporated milk to cut back a bit on the sweet. I also add a little extra pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon.

    I use that recipe, BUT I USE FRESH "PIE PUMPKIN" that is the secret to really good pumpkin pie.

    I know, I know, it's a pain to use fresh pumpkin, but it really makes a difference.

    Does using the sweetened condensed milk make the pie more or less sweet then using evaporated milk?

    I'm not much of a cook but that sounds so easy even I might give it a try! I could really blow my fiance away if I made a pie! Thanks [​IMG]

    I think that's the same recipe my mom uses for our thanksgiving pumpkin pie. I love it sooo much. I could eat the whole thing myself.

    Pumpkin pie is great for breakfast! And with a dollop of homemade whipped cream.....why not? [​IMG] Better for you than a bowl full of sugar bombs cereal.....
