Recipe by mermaidmagic
This is a recipe that we just served for a teacher's luncheon. It went over really well - a delicious dish. The cook, Michele, took this from one of Paula Deen's recipes. I prefer fresh mushrooms over canned, but I'm printing the recipe as written. Prep time reflects chilling time for pie crust.

Let me start out by saying that these were very delicious! The four star review is because the proportions are way off. I made the recipe exactly as written. The crust barely created six crusts in my jumbo muffin pan. Okay, so I made the filling. There was sooooo much filling, I filled the six muffing tins plus a 2 cup ramekin. I think it would have filled another 4 to 6 muffin cups. I had a very hard time getting them out of the tins because the crusts were not really sufficient for the filling. With that said, these were fabulous in taste, but next time I would either cut the filling in half and make them in individual ramekins so there is no need to transport them from the muffin tin to a plate (or bowl which is what I did to keep it in the right pot pie shape), or press the crust into a 9inch pie plate and cut into wedges. This would also be elegant served over puff pastry shells.
