The All Time Favourite No Bake Lemon Slice!!!

Today Im going to share with you an all time favourite family recipe that is whipped up quite regularly in our household.

Its a non bake lemon slice! Super quick to make, uses pantry staples and the kind of slice where you just can't stop at just one piece! Its incredibly moreish and will have your guests coming back for more!

I have a bit of a weakness for any sweet treat with a citrus flavour. Somehow, I have convinced myself that citrus = low fat……so its okay to eat seconds, thirds or even fourth helpings!

I found this recipe several years ago in one of my handful of old (and well loved) CWA cookbooks. Its seen many an agricultural field day, morning tea treat at work, playdates, picnics, weekends away with family and friends, and the perfect drop off foodie gift for a new mum or friend who just needs a pick me up! In the last year we have been making this slice at least once a fortnite. Our two eldest have taken a keen interest in helping out in the kitchen and this is a perfect one for them to partake in- although I need to keep a very watchful eye on the mixture which can disappear rather quickly! I now keep a regular supply of Marie biscuits and condensed milk in the pantry, along with coconut, icing sugar and butter.

If your not into lemon (or don't have any on hand) I think you could quite easily change the flavour of the icing to chocolate or passionfruit, etc. Ive often thought to experiment  with it a bit, but then I remind myself of the saying….If its not broke, don't fix it!

For the slice-
250g Sweet biscuits- I use a whole packet of Marie Biscuits
90g coconut
125g melted butter or margarine
1/2 can condensed milk

1 1/2 cups icing sugar
juice of a lemon
lemon zest & extra coconut to sprinkle on top!

Crush the biscuits in a food processor, or the good old anger management way of clip lock bag and roller, until you have fine to medium crumbs! Add coconut, followed by melted butter and condensed milk. Stir together and mix thoroughly. Press into a 9" square tin or 11' x 7" tin and place in fridge to set.
To make icing- Mix the lemon juice and icing sugar together. Pour on to slice then sprinkle some zest and extra coconut on top. Place back into fridge. Once set, cut into small squares or fingers.
I like to keep mine in the fridge (hidden) !!!!!

Have you a favourite slice that is loved by all? 
Until next time…..Kx
PS. Enjoy the slice!xx
