I made these today - just delicious! I didn't have any heavy cream so just used 1% milk - just a perfectly turned out little pie. Reminds me of a pecan roll. I am wanting to use the same crust and try a fruit filling also. The size is great for a tiny dessert - even one is satisfying, and two would be perfect. I sprayed my muffin tin with baking spray (contains flour) and had no difficulty popping them out using the tip of a small paring knife.
