Iced lemon squares
These squares are packed with a delicious lemon flavour and are perfect for afternoon tea or garden parties.

1 tsp olive oil

16 plain digestive biscuits, crushed
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp brown sugar
225g cream cheese
350ml sweetened condensed milk
60ml milk
1 tsp grated lemon zest
120ml lemon juice
2 tsp powdered gelatin
3 tbsp boiling water

50g icing sugar

Lightly grease a large baking tray with olive oil.

Combine the crushed digestive biscuits, butter and brown sugar together in a large bowl until they are affine sand substance. This is time consuming so use a food processor if you have one.

Layer the crumb mixture into the baking tray and flatten down using the back of a spoon or clean hands. Allow to chill in the fridge until ready to use.

Dissolve the gelatine powder in the boiling water and leave to cool.

In another bowl mix the cream cheese and condensed milk together until creamy. Add the lemon zest and lemon juice and stir until fully combined.

Stir the gelatine into the cream cheese mixture until fully combined. Remove your crust from the fridge and pour the lemon filling over it. Return the baking tray to the fridge and leave to set overnight or for a minimum of 8 hours.

When ready, slice into squares and sprinkle icing sugar on top.
