Ingredients

  • 6 ready-made deep mince pies, bought or homemade
  • 500ml vanilla ice cream, slightly softened, such as Taste The Difference Madagascan Vanilla
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 100g caster sugar

Step by step

Get ahead
Prepare the pies to the end of step 3 the day before. Bake for 8 minutes rather than 6 minutes.
  1. Use a small knife to carefully cut around the inner edge of the top of each mince pie; remove and discard the lid. Add a scoop of ice cream on top of the mincemeat filling and put on a foil-lined baking tray in the freezer for at least 1 hour, so the ice cream gets firm.
  2. Whisk the egg whites until stiff then beat in the caster sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the mixture is thick and glossy.
  3. Take the frozen mince pies out of their foil containers. Remove 1 or 2 mince pies at a time from the freezer; cover evenly with meringue. Use a round-bladed knife to spread the meringue so there are no gaps, and create peaks in the meringue topping. Pop back in the freezer until ready to brown.
  4. When ready to cook, turn the oven up to 220°C, fan 200°C, gas 9. Put the tray of Alaska mince pies in the oven and bake for 6 minutes until the meringue is toasted and the pie is warm or for 8 minutes if they have been frozen for more than 2 hours. Serve immediately.

    This recipe contains partially cooked eggs.
