Paula made this as a regular size pie. That was a little to much to eat at one time. Left overs are ok but the crust gets soggy. So I made a few changes, and put it in those little frozen tart shells. Update...I have since used refrigerated pie crust. Just cut rounds with a glass and bake in muffin tins. So much better than the tart shells.
