Lemon Slice - Wicked Wednesday

While this is a very short working week with both Easter Monday and Anzac day holidays,  I couldn't let a Wednesday slip by without a Wicked Wednesday post.   This week I've made my favourite slice, which is the humble Lemon Slice.  Lemon Slice is a wonderful afternoon tea and is perfect with a good coffee. Equally Lemon Slice can be made for a high tea or just a treat for school.

This slice is best removed from the fridge 30 mins prior to slicing.
