Pumkin Mousse Puffs

These are incredible! They melt in your mouth and taste better than pumkin pie. They refrigerate well too.

Wonderful dessert

This was delicious. Everyone loved it. Very light, but not rich tasting. Much easier to make than it seemed. Will definitely make again.

Pumpkin Mousse in Cinnamon Pastry Shell

Light and airy elegant finish to a meal. Not too sweet. Pumpkin flavor not overpowering. Amazing that something so good can be made so easily and quickly. I suggest you double necessary ingredients and make 24 instead of 12. No left over pumpkin in the refrig. and these are so good, people wiill want more than one!
