Sweet cheat sheets...

Here are a couple of cheat sheet-style recipes, which require minimal effort for maximum taste! The first is a scrumptious lemon slice, perfect for the warmer weather we've been having where you don't feel like anything too heavy. Having said that, it's quite rich so small slices are the way to go... I made this for morning tea with my grandmother, then left the rest for her - mainly so the lads and I didn't eat it all!

Lemon Macadamia Slice

1/2 cup condensed milk
125 butter, melted
250g plain sweet biscuits
1 teaspoon lemon rind
1 cup dessicated coconut

1 3/4 cups icing sugar (I used low GI sugar cane icing sugar)
3 tablespoons lemon juice
30g butter
1/2 cup macadamia nuts, chopped

Heat condensed milk and butter in a saucepan, stirring gently until butter is melted and mixture is smooth. 
Crush biscuits finely and add lemon rind and coconut. Add butter/condensed milk mixture and stir well. Press into lined slice pan and refrigerate for one hour.
To make the icing, mix the icing sugar, butter and lemon juice until smooth and creamy. Add some milk or water if too thick. Spread over base and sprinkle with macadamias.
