I brought these to a party and everyone loved them. I made the crust as directed, substituting walnuts for pecans. I wanted a bright red filling made from fresh cranberries, so I cooked some with sugar and a bit of orange juice, and used that as a filling in place of the sour cream/ dried cranberry mixture. They were delicious and easy. TIp: cut while still warm.
