Foodie Byte: Mini desserts are a great way to offer variety – and a little taste of luxury – without overindulging.

Preparation

  1. Beat cream cheese, pumpkin pie spice and 1/4 cup of the sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Add coconut milk; beat until well blended.
  2. Beat cream and remaining 1/4 cup sugar in another large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until stiff peaks form. Add 1/2 of the whipped cream to cream cheese mixture; stir until well blended. Gently stir in remaining whipped cream.
  3. Spoon 2 teaspoons of the crushed cookies into each of 12 (2-ounce) shot glasses. Divide strawberry slices evenly among glasses. Layer each glass with mousse and remaining crushed cookies.
  4. Garnish with fresh mint, if desired.
