Lemon Slice Recipe

I've had a few recipe requests for lemon slice so here it is:

Lemon Slice Recipe

1/2 cup condensed milk
125g butter
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
3/4 cup dessicated coconut
250g plain sweet biscuits (marie or malt work well)

Warm the condensed milk and butter. Stir until combined. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Press mixture into a slab tin lined with foil or baking paper.
Refrigerate until firm. Spread with lemon icing. Cut into small squares to serve.

To make the lemon icing, I just use icing sugar and lemon juice. I won't give you any quantities because my icing is usually a disaster!

If lemons are out of season, skip the lemon rind and just use bottled lemon juice for the icing.

If you have a food processor, it only takes about 30 seconds to crush the biccies (much quicker than doing it manually)!

I'd better start searching for my crochet hooks because I'm off to Brown Owls again tonight.....yippee!

Thanks for the recipe. It has been made several times over since I tried it out. My Mum always used to put a little bit of butter in her icing for cakes - maybe that helps it to set a little better.
