- 500g vanilla custard
- 280ml double cream
- 8 mince pies
Mix the vanilla custard and double cream in a bowl, and put into the freezer for about 2 hours.
Break up the mince pies into bite-sized pieces, and mix into the ice cream.

If you don’t have the time to make your own ice cream, leave a shop-brought pot to defrost until it is soft. Stir through the pieces of mince pie and freeze
