Luscious lemon slice







I had a friend come over one afternoon this week with her three girls for an overdue catch up, some serious tea drinking and baked treats.

I had been out all morning and needed to make something quick before they arrived.  I tried this lemon slice recipe and it was delicious.  The next time I make it I'm going to add a little more lemon juice and some grated rind as I prefer a more a lemony taste.  Even a lemon icing drizzled on top would be good.  It only takes a few minutes to prepare and 30 minutes in the oven.

Making treats like this makes me realise how much I love good old fashioned baking using butter and sugar.  Yum!

Luscious lemon slice

You will need:

Base
1 cup self-raising flour
½ cup caster sugar
60 g butter
1 egg, lightly beaten
 
Filling
¼ cup lemon juice
½ cup caster sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
60 g butter

Method:

For the base: sift flour into bowl, add sugar, stir well to combine. Rub in butter and add egg to form soft dough. Press two thirds into tin.

For the filling: place all filling ingredients into small pot and cook over low heat till thick.  Pour the hot filling over the dough in tin. Crumb remaining dough over top.

Bake at 350°F (180°C) for 30 minutes.

Enjoy!
