My guess as to why it didn't work is there is no whipping cream. Most turtle pie recipes I know of require 16 oz. of whipped topping folded into the cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk. I'll have to try it and see

I used this recipe for Thanksgiving and the pie sat in the fridge over night and it never set, still maintained the consistency of a liquid :( It looked so delicious when I made it, so if any one else has made this pie and had a different outcome I would love to know what i did wrong so i could try again.
