A slice is a wonderful sweet treat.  They are even more wonderful when there is no baking involved.  This slice is easy to make and even easier made in the CC.  Feel free to add some lemon zest to the icing - I usually do but didn't on this occasion because I accidentally grated my finger whilst zesting the lemon for the base and I was a bit gun shy!

Slice Base 
1 packet of plain biscuits (Marie, Arrowroot etc)
90g of dessicated coconut
Zest of one medium lemon
120g butter diced
1/2 tin of condensed milk

1. Line a slice tin with baking paper, with paper hanging over the long sides.
2. Place butter in the jug with the kneading blade. Select Speed 3 Temp 80 Time 1.30 min.
3. When butter is melted place broken up biscuits in the jug and select Pulse and pulse until the biscuits are crumbs (it doesn't matter if there are some small chunks of biscuits left).
4. Place other ingredients in the jug. Select Pastry P1 for 50 seconds.  Stop machine at 20 seconds remaining and scrape down the sides of the jug. Resume program.
5. Turn mixture out into the prepared tin. Press down firmly with the bottom of a drinking glass or measuring cup.
6. Cover with icing and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Icing30g butter, very soft
1 cup of icing sugar
2tsp lemon juice (you may need a bit more to achieve a good consistency)
1 tsp lemon zest (optional)

1. Place all ingredients in the jug with the kneading blade.
2. Select Speed 8 15 seconds.
3. Check consistency - add more lemon juice or more icing sugar if required.
