Mince Pie Eton Mess !!

I love Christmas Pudding but sometimes people can find it a little stodgy after a big Christmas Dinner. Here's an idea for something a little lighter but with all those Christmas flavours - Mince Pie Eton Mess !!
I can't take all the credit as the idea was put into my head by @BeverlyMacca1 on twitter - whose a hoot - if you're not doing already, follow her !!! 

Mince Pie Eton Mess

300 ml Double Cream
60ml Amaretto or a liquer of your choice
3 meringue nests
3 Marzipan Mince Pies or any shop bought ones
2 tblsps Mincemeat
1 tsp Mincemeat to decorate

Whip the cream and amaretto until it forms very soft peaks - don't over whip!!
Break the meringue nests - can be shop bought in and stir gently.
Cut the mince pies into 1cm pieces, add and stir in.
Add the mincemeat and stir in.
Spoon into a large glass serving bowl or individual glasses and decorate with a spoonful of mincemeat. So easy but gorgeous !!
