Has anyone tried these yet? The amounts shown are different to the amounts on the show, does it have to be chilled before baking the second time? Intend to try any way but would appreciate any help if you've already made them.

hmmm, I think I'd go with a handful of chopped nuts ... as for the cream, I'd just grab a small container ... seems it will be quite rich as is. Can you please let me know how it turns out?? I'd love to try this too - I love the show.
