Libby's pie, help/comments, please

I made the filling for pumpkin pie today, and have refrigerated it to make my crust and bake it tomorrow. It seems to be a little "loose". Is this the way it should be? I made it last year and it was perfect, but can't remember the consistency before baking. Suddenly, I am not sure of myself.

Thanks.

I just put a Libby's pie in the oven, yes it will be a very liquid mixture.

As a baker I can say that Libby's is a bit more loose this year, at least on the large scale level. We use a chemical stabilizer to make Libby's useable this year(we didn't get much Libby's this year)

I made one earlier today. Very liquid before, just fine after.

I used the Libby's recipe with Aldi brand pumpkin.

The recipe on the Libby's can always makes a runny filling. It will firm up when cooked to directions.

I used Aldi's pumpkin also but, I cheated and added a teaspoon of cornstarch.

I replaced the canned milk with 8oz. heavy cream and 4oz. milk!

Added some vanilla too. My mom puts vanilla in everything, and apparently I inherited that trait!

I had a case and a half of Aldi pumpkin, but am down to just 5 cans....
