So, the festive season is upon us – which means endless indulgence in all of my favourite foods. My childhood love was always mince pies – and I would literally plough through a whole packet of them in one go. Since then, I’ve tried to get creative and experiment with different ways to enjoy the mince pie classic – so I can keep on eating them, again and again. This year, I decided to share my latest – and now favourite re-creation of them.
For this recipe, I created a mince pie cookie sandwich. I layered some mince pie filling between two ginger cookies, and topped them with a cinnamon cacao drizzle. It makes such a delicious treat with a nice change for when you want to try an alternative to the classic mince pie.
I hope you enjoy the recipe and have a wonderful time over the holidays!
mince pie cookie sandwiches
for the cookies:
for the filling:
4 spoonfuls meridian mince pie filling
for the cinnamon-cacao drizzle:
2 tbsp liquid coconut oil – I used coconut merchant
2 tbsp cacao powder
2 tbsp vegan honey alternative – I used coconut merchant
1/8 tsp cinnamon – I used schwartz
- Firstly, make the drizzle. Add the coconut oil, cacao powder, vegan honey and cinnamon into a bowl, and stir together until well mixed and smooth. Then, set aside.
- Next, make the cookie sandwiches. Take two doves cookies. Take a spoonful of the mince pie filling, and place it onto one of the cookies. Then, top with the other cookie to make a sandwich. Repeat this three times, until you’ve made four cookie sandwiches.
- Lastly, get the cacao cinnamon drizzle, and spoon it on top of the cookie sandwiches to serve.
