Citrus Slice



It's citrus season here in New Zealand at the moment, and this recipe is such a good one to use citrus fruit in. This slice is so delicious and the bonus factor is that it's a no bake one too.  I'm not sure of it's original source (given to my by a friend), so if you do know where the original recipe came from, please let me know so that I can give credit where credit is due!

Base
100g butter
¾ cup (½ can) sweetened condensed milk
1 cup coconut
grated rind of 1 or 2 citrus fruit
1 (200g) packet wine biscuits

Icing
1 cup icing sugar
2 Tbsp soft butter
citrus fruit juice

Melt the butter.  Add condensed milk, coconut, finely grated rind of one large or two small lemons, oranges, mandarins or tangelos, and the crumbs made from biscuits.

Mix well, then press into a lightly buttered or sprayed square or rectangular dish.  Mixture need not fill dish but may be pressed to desired depth.

Mix icing sugar with soft butter, then add juice, a few drops at a time, to icing consistency.  Spread with a knife and decorate with fork if desired.  Refrigerate until firm.  Cut in squares or rectangles and store in the refrigerator.

I love this slice - and it can easily be doubled to create a thicker slice.

Enjoy!!

  1. This is a favourite in our house using lemons from our tree. It is an old recipe found in our Women Weekly cookbooks
    We did love your sweet sweet mandarins while in NZ this week. Xx
