An easy lemon slice recipe that doesn't require any baking and is perfect for the kids.
Ingredients
For base
  • ½ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 100g butter
  • 200g Granita biscuits
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 lemon, rind finely grated
Lemon icing
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • 40g butter, softened
  • 1 lemon, juiced
Instructions
Making the base:
  1. Grease and line a 3cm-deep, 15.5cm x 25cm (base) slab pan (see note).
  2. Place butter and condensed milk over medium heat. Cook with occasional stirring for around 4 to 5 minutes or until butter melts.
  3. Place biscuits in a food processor and process to fine crumbs.
  4. Combine the granita biscuit crumbs, coconut and 2 teaspoons lemon rind in a bowl. Add hot butter mixture. Give a good stir until combined.
  5. Press biscuit mixture into prepared pan. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.
Making the lemon icing:
  1. Place icing sugar, butter and 2½ tablespoons lemon juice in a bowl. Beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. Spread icing over slice.
  2. Refrigerate for a further 45 minutes or until icing has set.
  3. Cut into piece
  4. Finely grate lemon slice to sprinkle over the top and serve.
Notes
We found leaving an overhang on the sides (2cm or so) will allow you to easily pull the lemon slice from the tray when it's ready. Placing the graniate biscuits into a bag and rolling a tumbler glass over them also works wonders if you don't have a food processor.
