Lemon Slice

I found this recipe on www.kidspot.com.au and thought it sounded yummy enough (and easy enough) to share with everyone.


Too easy lemon slice

Makes 48 squares
Egg-free, nut-free (check your biscuits)
  • 2 x 200g packets shortbread biscuits (I used Paradise Butterscotch Shortbread)
  • 2 cups desiccated coconut
  • 400g can skim condensed milk
  • 125g butter, melted
  • Zest of 1 lemon, finely chopped


  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • 30g butter, softened
  • 2-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon desiccated coconut
Grease a 20cm x 30cm slice tin with butter. Smash the biscuits. Place crushed biscuits, coconut, lemon rind and condensed milk in a large bowl. Melt butter and add to other ingredients, mix well. Firmly press mixture into tray.

To make icing, sift icing sugar into bowl and stir in butter. Add lemon juice one tablespoon at a time until icing is a smooth, spreadable consistency. Spread slice with icing, sprinkle with coconut, refrigerate until firm and then slice into squares or triangles. Store in the fridge.
