"These are so simple and delicious. I made these for a cookout and everyone raved about them. Thankfully most of them were eaten that night, as the phyllo cups got soggy pretty quickly. We finished off the leftover filling by the spoonfuls, so the mousse could stand on its own merits."

"I used the Key lime mousse as a filling for a chocolate cake using the Fillables pan. I took it to a meeting and everyone was pleasantly surprised that it was not overly sweet. I will definitely make this again."

"Have not made yet, but on my list for the weekend. Rating high anyway to say: I always bake my cups/shells for any recipe I use them in. Otherwise, they can get soggy and fall apart. Yum, luv key lime."

"the filling didn't set well for me. I did add more Key lime juice from real key limes as well as some lime zest, and then some corn starch to set it. This taste great"
