Inspired by my fav cafe's $4.50 version
I think you will agree that $4.50 is a little steep for something sweet,
but my version maybe cost me $2 for the WHOLE THING! I made this whole thing up as I went along - but my GOSH it is delish!
Base: 125g Butter
100g Condensed milk
250g Plain biscuits/cookies - crushed to crumbs.
Melt butter and condensed milk together and stir through crumbs. Press into 6x6 inch lined tin.
Topping: 192g Icing sugar * Drop a dollop of mixture into a glass of
1/4cup milk cold water, if you can roll it into a ball
15g butter (I actually forgot this!) it's ready.
Zest of 2 lemons
Melt sugar, milk, butter and salt together in a saucepan. Bring to the boil and boil till the soft ball stage* is reached. Add coconut and zest and beat till thick. Pour onto base and chill. Cut into small squares and EAT - YUM!
Ps, I took the picture with my Granna's teaset - do you like?
The teacups are so TINY!
