Coconut Lemon Slice

I love Coconut Lemon Slice and the fact it’s a no-bake slice, makes it a perfect sweet to prepare & enjoy on hot summer days. I found this recipe online a long time ago and thought I’d share it with you.  Perfect with a cuppa. Enjoy! 


Ingredients 

  • 1 cup Sweet Condesened Milk (I use a whole 395g can)
  • 200g Butter
  • 500g Granita Biscuits 
  • 2 cups desiccated Coconut
  • 4tsp Lemon Rind (2 lemons are plenty)

Lemon Icing

  • 4 cups Icing Sugar
  • 100g Butter, room temperature 
  • Juice from 2 Lemons

Method 

  1. Line a 3cm deep, 20 x 40cm oven tray (or your biggest tray/pan) with baking paper.
  2. Place sweet condensed milk & butter in a saucepan over medium heat and stir until butter is melted, about 4-5 minutes. 
  3. Place biscuits in a food processor and process to fine crumbs. 
  4. Combine crumbs, coconut & lemon rind in a large bowl. Add hot butter mixture and stir until well combined. 
  5. Press biscuit mixture into prepared pan, about 1,5cm thick, and refrigerate for about 2 hours or until firm.
  6. Make lemon icing: Place Icing sugar, butter and 4-5 tbs lemon juice in a bowl. Mix with a wooden spoon or electric whisk until smooth. Spread icing over base and sprinkle lightly with desiccated coconut. Refrigerate until set and cut into 4 x 4 cm pieces.
