Lemon Slice

On your average Tuesday morning, why not make some lemon slice? With a lemon tree in the back yard, it seemed like a good idea to put them to good use! We were at our friend Bec's house so she helped us out and provided the lemons ;). They are perfectly tangy and great for morning or afternoon tea. 

It was painfully sad having to leave for gym without the slice as it wasn't ready, Bec dropped them over at midnight so we could get our hands on the bars of heaven. We brought them to gym with us and got many envious stares so of course we gave some friends a try. We weren't alone in how much much we loved them and craved more! Lucky for us, we didn't bring it all so there was still plenty at home!! 

We went straight off a recipe from, as we aren't that familiar with lemon slice but we made changes along the way and we were obviously very impressed.

Marie Biscuits went perfectly as they do in pretty much anything, but make sure not too crush them too finely as the chunks were what I found the best bits. If you want extra tanginess, feel free to add more lemon rind to the base than the recipe says but we felt the icing helped to enhance the lemon flavour.

Lemon Slice


1 packet Marie Biscuits
125g butter, melted
¾ cup coconut 
½ tin condensed milk
1 tbsp finely grated lemon rind


2 cups icing sugar
1 tbsp butter
3-4 tbsp lemon juice


1. Combine crushed biscuits, coconut and lemon rind and mix.
2. Combine butter and condensed milk and add to dry mixture. Stir well.
3. Press into a lined pan and place into the fridge to cool.
4. Icing: Combine ingredients and stir well. If mixture is too dry/solid, add more lemon juice or butter, and if mixture is too runny, add more icing sugar.
5. Once completely cool, ice slice and place in the fridge until completely solid before cutting.
6. Enjoy!

So we hope you enjoy this slice as much as we all did and we would like to thank Bec for her amazing lemons and her kitchen!

Keep cooking, twins in the kitchen :)
