Do you need a delicious little dessert in a hurry?
These little Key Lime phyllo cups, are the perfect little bite at the end of any meal. They would also be great when you need to take something to a fancy little party.
If you have an extra twenty minutes or so, you can impress your family or guests with a delicious, key lime tart dessert.
Phyllo, Fillo or Filo makes the perfect flaky, crispy cup for the key lime mousse. I added crushed frozen raspberries to the mousse, but that is of course optional.
Strawberries, huckleberries or even coconut would also be a perfect match with the Key Lime Mousse. It’s a fancy little dessert made in a flash.
This Key lime Mousse would also be fabulous in a cream puff or layered between Angel Food Cake. You could also make a parfait, and layer cookie crumbs and whipped cream in between the layers.
Heck . . . just take a spoon to it.
