TODAY’S RECIPE: Croissant mincemeat sandwich
QUICK and delicious. Serves: 2.
2 all-butter croissants 1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp golden caster sugar
FOR THE FILLING: 75g mascarpone
1 tbsp icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla bean paste ½ tsp mixed spice 50g orange and brandy mincemeat 1 Lay the croissants on a sheet of baking paper and fold it over so they’re covered. Roll them with a rolling pin until they are flattened. Melt the butter in a pan over a medium heat and, once foaming, fry for 2-3 mins on each side until browned. Transfer to a plate and drizzle the honey over one side, then sprinkle on the sugar. Return to the pan and fry, honey-side down, for 5 mins until caramelised and crisp.
2 Tip the mascarpone, icing sugar, vanilla and spice into a bowl and whisk well. Add the mincemeat and swirl through using a knife. Spread this over one of the croissants, sandwich the other on top, press down lightly, cut in half and divide between two plates.
