JELLY SLICE

This really is an oldie, but a it’s a goody.  Simple to make and one the kids like.

JELLY SLICE (NO BAKE)

I think this recipe deserves a photo as the jelly topping would look and taste really good.  It’s another one from Mum’s bowls club slices recipe book, which sadly has no photos at all.  The book would have been put together well before computers and Photoshop.  It would have been typed and the cover would have had to have been done at the printers – the good old days……

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!!

CHERRY RIPE SLICE (NO BAKE)

This is another no bake slice from the Keysborough Bowls Social Club Simple Slice Recipes cookbook.  Cochineal is just red food colouring and a few drops will give this slice a nice cherry pink colour, just like a Cherry Ripe bar.

LEMON BISCUIT SLICE – NO BAKE

This recipe pops up a couple of times in Mum’s collection.  The first one is pre-metrics so it dates from at least the 1970s.  This version has been converted which makes it a bit easier for us now.  It’s a pretty simple no bake slice, but it does taste lovely and lemony.

CHOC HEDGEHOG

This is a more upmarket version of the old hedgehog recipe which was traditionally made with Marie biscuits.  This recipe substitutes sponge fingers for the biscuits, dark chocolate for the cocoa powder and also adds in almonds and cashews.  Much fancier altogether and I’m guessing much more delicious.
