Citrus Slice

My brownie used to be the crowd favourite but now it’s the citrus slice.

This recipe is also fun at Xmas time and with a few little additions makes a fun addition to a Xmas sweets platter but more on that closer to Xmas.

Citrus Slice Recipe



200g butter

395g sweetened condensed milk

2 x 250g round wine biscuits, finely crushed

2 cups desiccated coconut

1 packet mixed peel

1 lemon, finely grated zest

1 orange, finely grated zest

( I don’t always use the lemon and/or orange as I think the mixed peel gives enough flavour )


50g cream cheese ( not light )

50g butter

1 lemon, finely grated

1½ cups icing sugar


Grease and line the base of a 30cm x 25cms lice tin

Melt butter and add the sweetened condensed milk stirring to combine.

Add the remaining ingredients for the base and mix to combine.

Press the base into the slice tin.

To make the icing, soften the cream cheese a little and then add butter and continue to soften. Beat together. Add the lemon zest and icing sugar to get the desired consistency. Spread over the base and refrigerate.
