not long till the big guy is here! only 5 sleeps until santa arrives!!
i'm desperately counting down my last days of work and keeping my fingers crossed for a sunny weekend!
hope everyone had a great weekend i headed up to palm beach for a wedding! it was beautiful!!
and here is the lemon coconut slice recipe we promised! its sooo tasty! (probably because its full of butter)

this slice is sooo quick to make you dont even have to bake it! amazing!! makes about 18 large squares depending on the tray/dish you set it in.

ingredients:
125g butter
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 x pack of milk arrowroot biscuits
1 cup desiccated coconut
1 tablespoon of lemon zest (dont worry you use the juice later your not stuck with bald lemons)

icing:
1 3/4 cups icing sugar
50g butter
2 tablespoons lemon juice
desiccated coconut for sprinkling on top of slice

grease a rectangle backing tray and line with paper, its up to you how thick or thin you wand the biscuit base but something around 18cm long is good. or you can use a circle cake tin and cut your slice into wedges.

place butter and condensed milk in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. once the butter is melted remove from the heat.

finely crush biscuits using a blender or food processor or our method of putting them in a plastic bag and bagging them with a rolling pin.

put the crushed biscuits in a bowl and add coconut and lemon rind.

add the butter mixture to the biscuit bowl and stir well to combine.

press the mixure into your pan/tray, pack it down nicely and flatten with you hand so its nice and smooth then refrigerate until its cool.

whip together butter, icing sugar and lemon juice for your icing.

spread the icing over the biscuit base, sprinkle with extra coconut over the top. refrigerate, remove from your pan, slice it into square and eat!!
