Mince Pie Ice Cream

As promised, my delicious Christmas Mince Pie Ice Cream. Last year this got devoured by everyone, even me and I don't like mince pies!

All you need is some sort of blender/food processor (yep - this isn't a technical recipe, think easy and tasty).

9 mince pies
1 litre of soft scoop vanilla ice cream
Things for toppings - sprinkles, sherry, cherries

1. Leave the ice cream out of the freezer until quite soft.
2. Transfer to a blender or food processor, then crumble in the mince pies (I was told without lids but it works fine with them) and blend until smooth - this took me and my super brilliant button pressing finger about five minutes.

3. Return the mixture to a plastic container and freeze for 2-3 hours until firm.
4. Serve with yummy toppings like sprinkles, crushed nuts and even a bit of sherry if you are feeling naughty. You can even serve with a mince pie on the side if you want to super indulge.

This year I am attempting the same thing with Christmas pudding and an extra gag one of sprouts, mainly to torture my brothers.

Come back at 1pm for my Peppermint Chocolate Cookie recipe - YAHUMMY!
