  • 1 cup desiccated coconut

  • 1 lemon, rind finely grated

  • Lemon icing

  • 2 cups icing sugar mixture

  • 40g butter, softened

  • 1 lemon, juiced


  • 1.

    Grease and line a 3cm-deep, 15.5cm x 25cm (base) slab pan (see note). Place condensed milk and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 4 to 5 minutes or until butter melts.

  • 2.

    Place biscuits in a food processor and process to fine crumbs. Combine crumbs, coconut and 2 teaspoons lemon rind in a bowl. Add hot butter mixture. Stir until well combined.

  • 3.

    Press biscuit mixture into prepared pan. Refrigerate for 1 1/2 hours or until firm.

  • 4.

    Make lemon icing: Place icing sugar mixture, butter and 2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice in a bowl. Beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. Spread icing over slice. Refrigerate for a further 30 minutes or until icing has set. Cut into pieces. Serve


Lining a slab pan: Lightly grease the base and sides of a slab pan, paying particular attention to the two short ends. Cut out a sheet of baking paper, allowing a 2cm overhang at each long side. Use the overhang to lift slice from pan in one piece.
