Christmas Dessert Hacks #1: Fruit Mince Pie Ice-Cream Sandwiches

This delicious, hand-held festive treat is perfect for enjoying outdoors on Christmas Day as you watch a game of backyard cricket. You can use any of your favourite biscuits for this recipe.

Equipment required:

Large dish, ice-cream scoop

2 litres vanilla ice-cream

1 x 410g jar fruit mince

16 round stem ginger or shortbread biscuits

Step 1: Make Ice-cream

Soften ice-cream by standing at room temperature for 5–10 minutes or placing in a stand mixer with a paddle attachment and beating for 1 minute or until softened. Add the fruit mince and gently stir to swirl through. Transfer to a dish and place in the freezer for 2 hours or until firm.
