LEMON COCONUT SLICE

Long ago Mum gave me the recipe for homemade lemon butter, it was always a favourite when the lemon tree was producing lots of fruit.  Nowadays it’s a lot easier to just buy a jar at the supermarket – doesn’t taste as good though.  So for this recipe if you’ve got the time, and the lemons, you can use homemade, but if not go with the bought variety.

LEMON MERINGUE RICE PIE

I would never have imagined that you could use rice cakes to make the base of a lemon meringue pie, but this recipe from Sunrice Australia published in the Women’s Weekly does just that.  In the picture the base looks quite good, it does have some crushed biscuits in there as well as coconut, so I guess it works and the filling has rice in it as well.   It’s certainly a different lemon meringue pie!!

HOT RHUBARB BUTTERNUT PIE

This recipe comes out of a Woman’s Weekly  pullout called Pies without Pastry.  When I first saw the title I thought the filling was rhubarb and butternut pumpkin which sounded very strange.  On reading the recipe I was relieved to discover the butternut was actually butternut biscuits crushed to make the base.  When you top that with the filling of rhubarb and apples and the crust of coconut and brown sugar you end up with a great tasting pie.
