Conventional Method

  • Crush the biscuits until they resemble fine crumbs. Add the melted butter and mix to combine. 
  • Press the biscuit mixture firmly into the base of the tin. Bake for 10 minutes in the oven. Remove and allow to cool. 
  • Using electric beaters or a stand mixer, beat the sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice and eggs until creamy (approximately 4-5 minutes). Note: the mixture will be very runny at this stage.
  • Pour the liquid onto the prepared base and bake for 15 minutes or until set. Allow to cool in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours (preferably overnight).

Notes

RECIPE NOTES & TIPS
Ingredients Info:
  • crushed biscuits – also called cookies in some parts of the world. You can use absolutely any brand of plain sweet biscuits/cookies you like. I generally use Arnott’s Marie biscuits which are very popular in Australia.
  • melted butter – you can use either salted or unsalted butter for this recipe.
  • lemon juice – fresh or store-bought lemon juice can be used for this recipe.
  • sweetened condensed milk – I recommend using full cream sweetened condensed milk (not skim) as it sets firmer when baked and has a creamier texture.
  • eggs – use large eggs (approximately 55g each).
More Recipe Tips:
Storing - One your slice has been baked and cooled completely, store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Freezing - Simply freeze in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Because this slice is made with sweetened condensed milk, it wont freeze solid, but rather change into a firm texture. Many of our readers love to eat this slice directly from the freezer as a frozen treat during summer! To defrost the slice, simply place into the fridge for an hour or two.
Doubling - You can double this recipe. Note: you will need to use a larger slice tin and increase the baking time slightly (continue baking until set).
