Lemon Slice Recipe

Here is the recipe I promised yesterday to go along with my latest Strawberry Jammin' installment. It's soooo gooood! Make it on the weekend. Go on. You know you want to. Then come back to You May Say I'm a Dreamer and tell me about how amazing it was.

Ingredients:

Base:
250g wine biscuits
1 cup desiccated coconut
Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
120g butter
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

Lemon Icing:
2 cups icing sugar, sifted
40g butter, melted
Juice of 1 lemon

1. Grease and line a 17 x 27cm slice tin with baking paper, leaving an overhang on all sides. Place biscuits in a food processor and process to form fine crumbs.

2. Transfer the mixture to a bowl, then combine with coconut and lemon rind. Place butter in a small saucepan over medium heat to melt. Stir in condensed milk. Pour melted mixture over the dry ingredients. Stir to combine well.

3. Press biscuit mixture into prepared tin. Refrigerate for one hour or until firm. When set, ice with lemon icing.

4. To make lemon icing, place the icing sugar in a bowl. Add melted butter and lemon juice and beat until smooth. Sprinkle  a bit of coconut on top.
