This is my second new recipe for my ‘Five Days : Five New Recipes’ challenge. My friend Alicia whipped this delicious lemon slice Taste recipe up over the weekend and was lovely enough to share it with me. It’s perfect for the kids lunchbox, or morning tea for the whole family. Yum!
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
200g granita biscuits
1 cup desiccated coconut
2 lemons, rind finely grated
2 cups icing sugar
40g butter softened
1 lemon, rind finely grated
1) Grease and line a 3cm deep, 15.5 x 25cm (base) slab pan. Place condensed milk and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 4 or 5 minutes or until butter has melted.
2) Place biscuits in a food processor and blend until fine crumbs. Combine crumbs, coconut and 4 teaspoons (we have doubled the amount from the Taste recipe) lemon rind in a bowl. Add butter mixture, stir until well combined. (If you don’t have a food processor, just place the biscuits in a plastic zip lock bag, seal and use a rolling pin to pound the biscuits into crumbs). Press biscuit mixture into prepared pan. Refrigerate for one and a half hours or until firm.
4) Make lemon icing: Place icing sugar, butter and 2 and 1/2 tablespoons of lemon juice in a bowl. Beat with a wooden soon until smooth. Spread icing over slice, refrigerate for a further half hour or until icing has set. Cut into pieces. Serve.
