Lemon Slice



Oh who can resist a slice of sweetness?

Especially a tangy one?



Lemon slices are a classic isn't it? Just that tiny piece of tangy sweetness ends a dinner pretty well don't you think? These little gems were made for a gathering that we had on a Friday and I was soo pleased to know they were gone quickly.

Although, a few people came to me and said:

"What lovely CHEESECAKE that was!"

DOH!


Lemon Slice (Suppose to be for 24 slices but I slice it smaller and made that to be around 30 slices)
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 1/4 cup plain flour
120 grams butter
1 tablespoon of milk

topping
1 1/3 tablespoons corn flour
1/3 cup of cream (low fat)
6 eggs
1 cup of castor sugar
2 tablespoons of lemon rind
3/4 cup of lemon juice

Preheat oven 170C. Line slice tray with paper.

Process sugar, flour, butter and milk in food processor(YES!) till mixture comes together. Press mixture to tin and bake for 25 minutes.

Topping: Whisk cornflour and 2 tablespoons of cream till smooth. Whisk remaining cream, eggs, sugar and lemon rind and juice. Place liquid in saucepan and cook over low heat for around 6 minutes till it thickens. Pour over base and bake for 5 minutes or till topping just set. Cool in tin and slice!
