Maybe I should have started a new thread for this. I think you would probably like it. I found this in one of the first cookbooks I ever bought. I've never made it but it sounds good. It would probably be ideal in one of the warmer places like Australia.
1 1/2 cups prepared mincemeat 375 mL
1/2 cup slivered almonds 125 mL
2 TBS Brandy or Rum extract 25 mL
3 pints vanilla ice cream softened 1.5L
combine mincemeat, slivered almonds and extract in bowl.
Put one-fourth ice cream in bottom of a 6 cup (1.5L) mold.
Alternately add mincemeat mixture and ice cream, packing down well. Cover and freeze overnight. Unmold on to serving plate. You can decorate the top and sides if desired.
