Recipe: Mince Pie Ice Cream


Whether you make this using up leftover mince pies or specifically for the big day itself you won't be disappointed. It's so simple... but a bowl of this will always go down a treat!


  • 2 deep filled mince pies
  • 500 g fresh vanilla custard
  • 1 shot of brandy
Make the mixture

Step 1

Make The Mixture

Take the tops off the mince pies and scoop out the mincemeat. Pour the custard into a large bowl, splash in the brandy if you’re using it and stir in the mincemeat.

Add the pastry

Step 2

Add The Pastry

Transfer the mix into a dish that will fit into your freezer (you could use the same bowl). Place the bowl in the freezer to set. Stir the mix every 15 minutes or so to keep it smooth. Roughly break up the mince pie pastry. When the custard is half set, stir in the pastry and return to the freezer. It should take a few hours to fully set.

Scoop To Serve

Serve And Enjoy
