"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"

"Made these for a group of 12 people and everyone loved them! The day before serving I put the mousse in a ziplock bag and refrigerated it. At the last minute I cut the corner off the bag and "piped" the mousse into the cups, it worked great.

There was left-over mousse so the next morning I made crepes, filled them with the mousse and the extra raspberries, Yum again!"

"I agree with one of the other commentators, I added much less condensed milk and they were perfect to my liking!"
