Great little dessert...perfect for afternoon tea.
"I made this for a leaving party we were having in work. It was amazing, the shortbread was so moist and was the perfectly accomapnied by the tart ness of the mousse.
Next time im going to add salt to the shortbread crust to give a more fuller, classical taste. I used dark brown sugar instead of light and didn't find it over powering."
