Gluten Free Lemon Slice

This is a delicious no-bake crowd pleaser! I made it recently for a school fundraiser and was delighted when it sold out quickly. The kids have fun making this, depending on their age, children will need assistance melting the butter. It’s more fun to turn the biscuits into crumbs using a rolling pin – and there are more chunky bits in the resulting slice. Of course, if you’re in a hurry, a quick blitz in your food processor will do the job nicely.

Quick no-bake lemon slice – gluten free!

 Base

120g butter
½ cup sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon lemon rind
1 cup coconut
200g plain sweet GF biscuits (we use Eskal brand Tea Biscuits)

Topping

2 cups icing sugar
2 tablespoons coconut
¼ cup lemon juice
2 teaspoons butter

Base: Crush the biscuits to resemble ‘crumbs’ in a food processor, or use a rolling pin to crush biscuits on a sheet of baking paper. In a large bowl mix biscuit crumbs, lemon rind and coconut.
Place butter and condensed milk in a small saucepan. Keep on low heat until butter has gently melted and the mixture is combined. Gently stir and take care not to burn!
Add to the biscuit crumbs and mix well. Using the back of a spoon, press the mixture into a tin, covered with baking paper. I use a square tin (22x22cm) with a removable base. Chill for an hour.
Ice with lemon topping, sprinkle with another dusting of coconut. When the icing has set, cut to size.

Topping: Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Mix to icing consistency. If the mix is a little dry, add a teaspoon of hot water to bring together.

Note: This recipe can be easily be doubled to make a larger slice. In this case use a slice tin, approx 20x30cm.
