Strawberries and shortbread come to life with the warm, nutty flavor of pumpkin pie spice and the tropical essence of coconut milk in this smooth, creamy mousse. Test Kitchen Tip: Mini desserts are a great way to offer variety – and a little taste of luxury – without overindulging. Serve a sampler of Spiced Mousse Mini Desserts (see Similar Recipes, at right, for more recipes).
