This pie is very good. I know one commentator complained that it’s not light and fluffy like a traditional mousse that is served in a glass dish. But that doesn’t work with a pie, as it would fall apart when you tried to slice it. I think this recipe is the perfect balance between a mousse like texture and stability for slicing. I did drop the Baileys from 3/4 to 1/2 cup and used a cup of milk to compensate. But that was just a matter of personal taste.
Sorry but we did not care for this at all. Made as directed & it turned out stiff, because of the gelatin I'm sure.Mousse should be fluffy & lite.Being concerned the kids would get into it was another downside. The alcolhol flavor was toooo strong for our taste. Giving it 3 stars for ease of preparation.
