Inspired by K's Xmas Pudding Ice Cream from In the Mood for Noodles and figuring that mice pies are really not too dissimilar to using biscuits and a fruit mix, I turned the leftover fruit mince pies into fruit mince pie ice cream. Given that I cheated and used leftover vanilla ice cream rather than making my own ice cream base I was fully prepared for it to be a total failure in food experimentation but it worked really well.
- 4 cups ice cream, softened
- 1/4 cup Brandy
- 6 fruit mince pies
- 1/2 teaspoon mixed spice
- Mix brandy into the softened ice cream
- Chop or crumble the fruit mince pies and mix through the ice cream
- Realise how much better fruit mince pies are when encased in ice cream!
I'm not much of a fan of fruit mince pies but in ice cream I actually enjoyed them. Everything is better with ice cream.
