Festive Ice Cream Sandwiches

Recipe by: Abigail Donnelly  

Makes: 16
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Cooking time:  40 minutes
2 x 500 ml tubs M&S Madagascan vanilla ice-cream
1 ½  cups Christmas fruit mince (see page 73, or use store-bought)
4 free-range egg whites
330 g caster sugar
Pink food colouring
Seasonal berries, to garnish
White-chocolate-dipped cherries, to garnish
Icing sugar, for dusting
Mix the ice cream and fruit mince, then return to the freezer. Preheat the oven to 150°C. Beat the egg whites at a high speed using an electric hand-mixer until soft peaks form. Slowly add the sugar while beating at a medium speed until thick and glossy.
Add the food colouring until the mixture is light pink.
Spoon the mixture onto a greased baking tray or baking mat into circles 6 cm in diameter.
Bake for 35–40 minutes, or until crisp on the outside and slightly chewy inside. Allow to cool.
Sandwich the ice-cream between the meringues and place on a platter. Garnish with berries and dust with icing sugar.
