Preheat the oven to 350° F. Open the tube of dough and cut it into 12 equal pieces. Place them into the wells of a standard-size muffin tin. Press the dough into the bottom and up the sides to the top of the tin. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Use fingers to flatten the dough and remove any bubbles. Run a knife around the outside edge of the cookies to loosen them from the tin. Transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely. To a medium bowl, add the heavy cream. Whip with an electric mixer until stiff. In a separate medium bowl, beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth. Add the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture and beat until just combined. Refrigerate for 20 minutes. To assemble tarts, place a generous spoonful of the cream cheese mixture into the center of each cookie. Top with a dollop of pie filling. Refrigerate until serving.
