Nana’s Uncooked Lemon Slice

A family favourite. Easy to make, no cooking or fussing, tastes fresh and zesty and is nourishing for people struggling to maintain their weight. It is great refrigerated; however we love it straight from the freezer! (Remember to cut it into squares before freezing).


Serves: 16 squares
Preparation: 10 minutes

Combine melted butter, condensed milk and the juice and rind of the lemon in a large bowl. Add crushed biscuits and coconut and mix with a spoon.

Press into a slab tin.

Combine icing sugar with lemon juice and enough milk to form a thick icing sugar. Spread over slice and top with coconut.

Refrigerate and when set cut into squares.
