  • 3/4 cup condensed milk
  • 100g butter melted

Line a 21cm x 16 cm slice tin with baking paper and set aside.

Place biscuits, coconut, condensed milk, butter and lemon rind in a food processor. Pulse until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Press the mixture into the slice tin.

To make the icing, using a mixer, beat the butter and add the lemon juice. Gradually add icing sugar. Spread over slice, sprinkle with coconut and refrigerate for 1 hour before cutting into squares.
