Lemon icing

The slab


Lemon Slice
125g butter
1/2 cup condensed milk
250g pkt arrowroot biscuits or similar, crushed

1 3/4 cups sifted icing sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons coconut
15g butter
1. Place butter & condensed milk in saucepan and stir over low heat until melted.
2. Combine biscuit crumbs with coconut & rind.
3. Add milk mixture and mix well.
4. Press firmly into foil lined 18x28cm slab tin.
5. Place in fridge until firm.
6. Prepare icing - combine all ingredients until smooth. Spread over base. Sprinkle with shreds of lemon & lime rind and toasted coconut if desired.
7.Cut into squares and return to fridge until icing sets.


  1. Yummo! I remember making something similar to this at school - only we sandwiched the topping between two layers of whole biscuits instead.

  2. I like the "crush crush" bit hehe That still looks like I could mess it up but I might just give it a go... After I make packet brownies today hehehehehe... xo Steph
