“"Mousse is a French terms meaning "froth" of "foam," and this Bailey's Irish Cream-enriched dessert is just that. A cross between a pudding and a fool, it is made with whole fruit instead of crushed blueberries and meringue instead of whipped cream." This dessert is awesome - made it years' ago and I fell upon this just a few days ago, this time I decided to post it. This was found in Irish Puddings, Tarts, Crumbnles and Fools by Margaaret M. Johnson”
