Lemon lovers, call your attention.

I love Slices, and no bake is even better! These simple recipes are the best whether you want a chocolatey piece of Mars Bar Slice or a tangy wake-up call like my Easy Passionfruit Slice.
These are perfect for sharing at a party or afternoon or morning tea. This buttery Lemon Slice doesn’t disappoint.
This bright, flavourful dessert is made with store-bought crushed biscuits, coconut, and fresh lemon juice.
It’s then topped with a generous amount of butter and sweetened condensed cream to make the cake buttery and delicious. You’re welcome!
A thin layer of lemon frosting is the final touch, which brings the lemon flavor to the forefront.
How to make Lemon Slice
This recipe is quick and straightforward. Electric mixers are not necessary. It’s no bake. Start by using a spoon and a bowl.
You can use any plain, sweet cookie from a store.
If you don’t own a food processor (or, like me, have dropped your lid too many times), you can crush them with a rolling pin. It’s both practical and therapeutic.
You can add lemon zest and desiccated Coconut to the crushed cookies. Although you can use shredded or pulverized coconut, I prefer the finer crumbs of desiccated.
Pour over the melted butter and sweetened condensed Milk. I recommend using fresh lemon juice and full-fat sweetened condensed (I tested the recipe with Nestle Sweetened Condensed) milk for maximum flavor.
Stir everything well and place the mixture in a baking pan lined with parchment or baking paper. This will make it easier to remove later.
Use the back of the dessert spoon to press the slices down until they are tightly packed in one layer. Place in the refrigerator to set.
It’s as simple as 1-2-3 to make the icing. Add the milk, lemon juice, and sugar together. Remember to sift the icing sugar before using it so there are no lumps!
How to store lemon slices
Pour the mixture over your slice, and set it in the refrigerator. The piece will keep in the fridge for about three days if you can wait that long.

Stir in coconut and lemon zest. Microwave butter until smooth and melted.
Stir quickly after adding the butter, lemon juice, and sweetened condensed Milk to the biscuit mixture. Pour into the baking pan when the biscuit crumbs have been thoroughly coated. Use the back of a wooden spoon to press down and create an even layer.
