Lemony Slice goodness!

If the way to your man's heart is thru his tummy, then girlfriend, I am handing you the key!
This little baby is not only scrumptious but it looks like you have been slaving in the kitchen for ages, when in actual fact it is quite quick and doesn't even need to go into the oven!!
But I can't lie, as tasty as this slice is, if your new years resolution was to loose a few kilos then maybe give this baby a miss......
Renee's Evil but oh so tasty, lemon slice:
3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
150g butter
300g Granita biscuits
1 1/2 cups desiccated coconut
zest of 1 lemon.
lemon icing:
1 cup icing sugar
25g butter
juice from 1/2 a lemon
Grease and line 3cm deep, 15.5cm x 25cm slab tin.
Continually stir over gentle heat the condensed milk and butter in a small saucepan until butter melts (approx 5 mins).
Crush up Granitas until fine crumbs (or process in a food processor)
Combine crumbs, coconut and lemon rind in a bowl, add hot butter mixture and stir till well combined.
Press mixture into prepared tin and refrigerate for 1 1/2 hours.
Make lemon icing: melt butter, add icing sugar and lemon juice beat until smooth and spread over slice base.
Refrigerate for a further 30mins, cut into pieces and serve!
Let me know what you think!!
