I baked Meta Given's pumpkin pie for 35 minute but after 2 hours out it's still too runny. Would it ruin it to put it back in?

How long has it been out of the oven?
It's been out for about 2 hours, so I was hoping it would have set more by now. I'll wait a little longer and then maybe put it back at a gentler heat if it's not better in an hour. Thank you!
Also, custard pies often seem like they're too runny when you first take them out of the oven—a small circle in the center should actually still jiggle. It will set as it cools down (so you may be fine!).
Runny pie is a bummer. I'd put it in at a lower temperature for a gentler heat through—maybe 300°F.
Thanks, Ali. I will try that in a bit if it doesn't firm up (and cross my fingers it works!)
