Depends on the recipe, but most often yes. The results just won't be as rich. What are you making?

hardlikearmour is a trusted home cook.
As long as you're not trying to whip it. If the recipe calls for liquid heavy cream, then half-and-half most likely will be an adequate substitute. If the recipe needs the extra fat from the cream, you could add a little unsalted butter also.
I have often sub'd half and half, but would not go any lower in fat content.
Half n half is fine for most recipes that call for cream. Just keep in mind you do not save hardly any calories by doing that.

Hi can I use half and half instead of heavy cream I’m making chicken and mushroom pasta
Doesn't seem like a problem to me- you might want to add a touch of butter as mentioned above

That huge, crispy, flaky shell is worth it.
