My dear friend Sal brought this lemon slice over to my barbecue and it was a sweet-hit winner. With the zesty top and biscuit base, it would have been simple to put together as well. She shared the recipe with me…

Sal’s Lemon Slice

1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
100g butter
200g Granita biscuits
1 cup desiccated coconut
1 lemon, rind finely grated

Lemon icing

2 cups icing sugar mixture
40g butter, softened
1 lemon, juiced

Grease and line a 3cm-deep, 15.5cm x 25cm (base) slab pan (see note). Place condensed milk and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 4 to 5 minutes or until butter melts.

Place biscuits in a food processor and process to fine crumbs. Combine crumbs, coconut and 2 teaspoons lemon rind in a bowl. Add hot butter mixture. Stir until well combined. Press biscuit mixture into prepared pan. Refrigerate for 1 1/2 hours or until firm.

Make lemon icing: Place icing sugar mixture, butter and 2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice in a bowl. Beat with a wooden spoon until smooth.

Spread icing over slice. Refrigerate for a further 30 minutes or until icing has set. Cut into pieces (Makes 12-16). Serve.

Notes

Lining a slab pan: Lightly grease the base and sides of a slab pan, paying particular attention to the two short ends. Cut out a sheet of baking paper, allowing a 2cm overhang at each long side. Use the overhang to lift slice from pan in one piece.
