Best Low-Effort Desserts? +Lemon Slice recipe

mingerspice | Jul 19, 2006 11:55 AM

Hi, I recently learned how to make lemon slice - it's a refrigerated dessert. The most work really involves melting butter. The other amazing thing - it didn't require any weird better-living-through-chemistry type ingredients (and by that I mean Cool Whip). It was really easy to do and can be more or less made with two bowls and a pan. There's no baking, and it's super tasty. It took about 20 minutes to assemble, and then chilled in the refrigerator for a few hours. Cleanup was a breeze.

Do people have other dessert recipes that require no baking and little effort that are nonetheless tasty (and not full of weird ingredients). Lemon Slice recipe follows

Lemon Slice

1/2 cup condensed milk
125g. butter
250g crushed marie biscuits
1 cup dessicated coconut
Zest of 2 lemons

Heat condensed milk and butter until butter melts.
Mix together crushed biscuits, coconut and lemon zest.
Mix together wet and dry ingredients.
Press into a square baking sheet.

Icing:
1 3/4 cup icing sugar
3 tbsp lemon juice
15g butter, softened
Zest of one lemon

Mix together all ingredients.
Spread on the cookie mixture.
