These were great! I prepared the recipe exactly as indicated but used the small, mini-tin to make them bite size! Delicious! Will make these again!

Honestly wish it came with a crust recipe, so you don't have to go searching around for one that may-or-may-not be able to cook within the time frame, though it looks very delicious!
