Heat together until butter is melted, either stovetop or in microwave. Add to the pumpkin mixture and stir together thoroughly.
2 pie shells, uncooked Pour into uncooked pie shells. Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes, then without opening the oven door, reduce the heat to 350 degrees and bake up to another 35 minutes. Remove from oven when there is a roughly 4"-diameter ring of seemingly-uncooked filling in the center. Cool completely before cutting or serving.
