One of my favourite foods from my childhood is lemon slice.  My auntie used to make the most delicious one and it was all I could do to stop myself gobbling a whole plateful when I visited.  Then I learnt to make it in Home Ec and there was no stopping me.  Until I left home that is, and went through an “I don’t cook phase”.

That lasted about 8 years I’m sorry to say and I forgot some of my favourite recipes (no, I didn’t write them down – I had a mind like a steel trap back then.  Gone now, but that’s another story).  Like how to make lemon slice.  I knew the ingredients, but when I wanted to make it again I could never get the proportions right.  I was either too dry and crumbly or too soggy.

Then, one fateful day Planning Queen posted a lemon slice recipe on her blog.  It was THE ONE.

Crush a packet of plain sweet biscuits.  This is a fun job for the kids.  Stand back though, they can get a bit wild with the rolling pin.

Stir it all till it’s well combined.

Ice with lemon icing – about 1 1/2 cups of icing sugar, the juice of a lemon and water if needed.  Sprinkle with coconut and pop it in the fridge for an hour or two, till the icing is set (if you can wait that long).
