This is a great way to use up leftover mince pies by transforming them into a gorgeous ice cream! Delicious when eaten on it’s own or alongside a warming Christmas pud.

Take the lids off the mince pies and scoop out the filling. Reserve the pastry. 

Pour the custard and brandy (if using), into a freezer proof container and stir in the mincemeat filling. Pop in the freezer for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes, until half set. 

Roughly break up the reserved pastry and stir into the custard mixture. Return to the freezer for 2-3 hours, until completely set. 

Remove the ice cream from the freezer 10-20 minutes before serving to soften. Serve in scoops with your favourite pudding, such as crumble.
