Non-Bake Lemon & Coconut Slice - GlutenFree

Here is a recipe for a non-bake lemon and coconut slice that my grandmother gave to me when I was growing up. I've changed it recently to be gluten free. 
It's so easy and quick and everyone loves it!

1/2 cup sweet condensed milk
125g butter
250g gluten free tea biscuits (finely crushed)
(for non gluten free recipe, use 250g of arrowroot biscuits)
1 teaspoon of grated lemon rind
1 cup coconut

1 cup icing sugar (I use CSR brand gluten free)
15g butter
2 tablespoons of coconut
3 tablespoons of lemon juice

Mix all ingredients well and press into a thin glass or baking dish
Refrigerate for at least an hour
Ice with lemon icing
Sprinkle with desired amount of coconut
When icing has set, cut into squares

Enjoy cooking and eating this beautiful slice with your kids, grand-kids or someone special!
