    • Total time: 1 hour 50 minutes 60 minutes 50 minutes

    Serves: 6 - 8


    • 75g Waitrose English Butter
    • 150g pack Anna's Ginger Thins, processed or crushed into crumbs
    • 150ml Jokk Swedish Lingonberry Juice drink
    • 125g pack Waitrose Fresh Blueberries
    • 2tbsp cornflour
    • 150g pack Waitrose Fresh Raspberries
    • 750ml tub Winner Vanilla Swedish Glace
    • 4 medium free range egg whites
    • 100g caster sugar


    1. Melt the butter and add the biscuit crumbs. Mix well and press the mixture over the base of a greased 19cm loose-bottomed tin and about 3cm up the sides.
    2. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C, gas mark 4 for 10 minutes or until the edge of the base starts to brown. Allow to cool.
    3. Pour three quarters of the Lingonberry juice into a small saucepan. Add the blueberries, bring to the boil and simmer for 2 minutes or until the skins of the berries start to split. Blend the cornflour with the remaining Lingonberry juice. Add to the cooked blueberries with the raspberries and stir until the mixture thickens and boils. Simmer for 1 minute then remove from the heat and allow to cool.
    4. Pour the mixture into the biscuit base and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or until completely cold. Remove the filled biscuit base from the tin and stand on a baking sheet. Carefully turn the glace out of the tub and place in one piece on the fruit mixture. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
    5. Whisk the egg whites until stiff and then gradually whisk in the sugar, 2tbsp at a time until thick and smooth. Spread the egg white over the glace and bake in a preheated oven at 200°C, gas mark 6 for about 10 minutes or until the meringue is golden. Dust with icing sugar and serve.

    Cook's tips

    Don't miss out on the cooling times as they help ensure that the glace remains frozen. Don't leave the dessert in the freezer for more than 30 minutes or the fruit as well as the glace will be frozen when you serve.
