I whipped up this slice late last night. I received a phone call letting me know that there would guests this morning. I have some biscuits handy that I made yesterday but wanted something else in case there were people with different tastes (friends are bringing their parents, whom I have not previously met).
It is a simple non cook lemon slice which I iced when I got up this morning. To be honest, it isn’t something I would make again for myself, although it is perfectly nice, it isn’t to my taste (what was I saying about different tastes?). I say this after eating 3 pieces, so there is testament to it being rather nice, even if it doesn’t wow me. *Post visit note: My guests not only ate all the lemon slice that I put out, they took the remainder with them in a care package. Different folks, different strokes as they say. I am just happy they enjoyed it so much.
So if you like sweet slices that you don’t really have to cook and lemon flavoured things are your bag then I suggest giving this a go.
1 pkt marie biscuits, crushed
3/4 cup coconut
1 lemon, zested
125g butter, melted
1/2 tin condensed milk
Combine biscuit crumbs, coconut and lemon zest.
Mix together butter and condensed milk then add to the dry ingredients and mix well.
Place into a paper-lined slice tin and set in the fridge.
Optional: When cool, top with a little lemon icing made by mixing icing sugar, lemon juice and soft butter
