    Made this Lemon Slice, from, February 1st 2016. Deliciousness personified! Loved it. I did add, maybe, a quarter of a cup of water to the base mixture, but otherwise I followed the recipe to the T.

    Have just made this, blitzed it in food processor and came out fine. Used jar of homemade Lemon Butter I had in fridge. Very quick and easy to make. Next time I will add some slivered almonds to top crumble.
