Lime Mousse in Phyllo Cups Recipe

Lime gives a tart refreshing flavor to sweetened whipped cream. You can also use the lime mousse to fill individual purchased tart cups.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 10 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 12 sheets phyllo dough (14 inches x 9 inches)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated lime peel
  • 1 drop green food coloring, optional
  • Fresh lime slices, optional

Directions

  • 1. Place two sheets of phyllo dough on top of each other. Keep remaining phyllo dough covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent drying. Cut layered sheets in half widthwise. Brush top sheet of each with butter. Lightly press one stack into a 6-oz. custard cup coated with cooking spray. Lightly press second stack on top. Repeat with five more cups.
  • 2. Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before carefully removing pastry to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • 3. For mousse, beat cream in a chilled small bowl until thickened. Add the sugar, lime juice, lime peel and food coloring if desired; beat until soft peaks form. Just before serving, fill phyllo cups with mousse. Garnish with lime slices if desired. Yield: 6 servings.
