okay first of all, I cut down on the butter quite a bit. Only used abt 1/2 cup that I melted in the pie plate in the oven. Then, I added the crumbs with the sugar and mixed it all in and pressed it gently to cover bottom. I omitted the ginger, as I don't like it much. I baked the crust in a 375 oven for a few minutes just to dry it a bit. Then, let it cool. As for the condensed milk, I used a 300ml can and the best and easiest way was to boil it in a big sauce pan filled with water, so I didn't have to watch it as closely. Only added a bit of water each 1 1\2 hours. Boiled it for 4 1/2 hours. I let it rest abt 30 mins. Didn't ooze out much cuz it had cooled. It was nice and firm and creamy and brown in color. I thought it may have been overcooked, but thank goodness, it tasted great! I also added a bit of sugar(1 tbsp) to the whipped cream, and shaved chocolate on top. Beautifu looking and my whole family loved it! They said it was really very delicious! Thanks for the recipe. Easy and delish. Worth the wait!
