Christmas dessert should be a delectable crowd pleasing festive finish to your Christmas roast. This mince pie ice-cream will keep young and old happy and is super easy to prepare and looks perfectly homemade!
All you need is a platter – just cut into slices and serve.
For my mince pie ice-cream you will need:
2 tubs of your favourite vanilla (Haagen-Dazs does it for me)
3 quality mince pies
50g toasted almonds
This will make about 8-10 portions
Lay the inside of a large loaf tin with clingfilm. A few layers give it some more strength.
Sprinkle some toasted almonds into the bottom of your tin and place about 5 small pieces of minced pie there too. This will ensure a few bits of minced pie will be displayed at the top of your ice-cream slab along with the almonds.
Scoop out some ice-cream into a bowl then sprinkle over some minced pie pieces and a few remaining toasted almonds.
Keep repeating until all the ingredients are used up.
Use a spoon to lightly spread the additions through the vanilla ice-cream, then tip the newly formed mince pie ice-cream into your loaf tin.
Even the surface and wrap the layers of cling film over the top.
Place in the freezer for at least 4 hours or overnight.
This will keep for ages and can used as a super dessert ready for unexpected guests.
