pumpkin pie question

addicted2cake | Feb 27, 2012 08:50 AM

I know we're way past Thanksgiving, but I love pumpkin pie. Yesterday, I made the recipe on Libby's can. Tastes very good, but the consistency is mushy. I've read to take the pie out when center jiggles, so I did that. Put it in fridge after cooling several hours then had some this morning. It's mushy!! What causes this? This isn't the first time my pumpkin pies have turned out mushy while following recipes (almost) to the letter. I used soymilk instead of condensed (lactose issues). Sometimes, my pies firm up after a couple days, but I'd really like to have a firm slice from the get-go. Is the soymilk the culprit? I cooked pie for an hour. Any thoughts??
p.s. would adding a little cornstarch help or totally mess up the pie??
