Unbaked Lemon Coconut Slice

This is a simple thing to make. It also freezes well. It is sticky so needs to be kept in the fridge, not on the countertop.

Unbaked Lemon Coconut Slice

Base
90 g (3 oz) butter
250 ml (8 oz) sweetened condensed milk
250g (8 oz) plain, sweet biscuits (US cookies) such as Nice, Marie or Arrowroot
1 C dessicated coconut/shredded coconut
2 tbsp lemon juice

Icing
1 1/2-13/4 C icing (confectioner's) sugar
1 tbsp butter, melted
2 tbsp lemon juice

Method
To make base: Crush biscuits finely. Combine butter and condensed milk in a saucepan over low heat and stir until butter melts. In a bowl combine crushed biscuits, butter mixture, coconut and lemon juice. Press mixture into a 9" x 13" greased or paper-lined pan and refrigerate until firm.

To make icing: Sift sugar. Combine with butter and lemon juice and beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. Add extra icing sugar is the icing is too liquid, or extra lemon juice if it is too stiff. Spread over slice and sprinkle with a little extra coconut. Refrigerate again until icing sets.



Cut into squares and enjoy!

Thanks to Our Red House for the recipe

Hello Gill
Thanks for that link to the recipes. You manage ot come up with some good ones.

Popped back to say you most likely did post a comment on that particular day - I noticed several people had clicked on comments but there was nothing there. Mind you they could have just been looking to see what was therre as 'you' do sometimes but yours was one of the 'clicks'

Blogger had been playing up a bit recently, I've had trouble on other blogs
Take care
Cathy

Do you think you can leave the coconut out and have it still turn out? I hate coconut. But this sounds yummy & hubby LOVES lemon.
