I opted for am 8 inch tart tin (1 1/2 inch deep), the filling might be sufficient for a 9 inch tart tin, but the pastry (it's more like a cookie dough, requires gentle handling - suggest you roll out between two pieces of food grade acetate) would in my opinion be better suited for a 7 inch tart tin. I opted for double cream (48% fat) but would think whipping cream (35% fat) would be ok - I don't think single cream (18% fat) would be suitable.
