It's the Aussie version ... biscuit/coconut & lemon base with lemon icing topping. I know it's dead simple but need quantities to get it right. TIA

Is this it???
Lemon Coconut squares #54363
I love these no bake Lemon Coconut Squares, as I love anything with lemon in it. They are really popular in Australia and you often get them at morning and afternoon teas.
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
4 ounces butter
8 ounces milk arrowroot biscuits, finely crushed (a plain sweet cookie)
1 teaspoon grated fresh lemon rind
1 cup coconut
Lemon Icing
1 3/4 cups icing sugar
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 ounce butter
2 tablespoons coconut

1 Tray Change size or US/metric
Change to: Tray US Metric

20 minutes 20 mins prep

sorry heres the method!

Put condensed milk and butter in a small pan, stir over gentle heat until butter has melted and mixture is combined.
Add lemon rind and coconut to biscuit crumbs, mix well.
Add butter and milk mixture to crumb mixture, mix together well with your hands.
Press into a greased lamington tray (11in x 7in).
Refrigerate 1 hour.
Ice with lemon icing, sprinkle with coconut.
When the icing has set, cut into squares.
Lemon Icing: Combine sifted icing sugar, lemon juice and soft butter in a bowl.
Mix well to make a smooth icing.

Thanks Banshee - that's the one! I'm just back from Australia and was having one with every cup of coffee so had become well and truly addicted!!

Oh - one question - are these US/Aus or UK cup sizes? I'm assuming Australian but better check!
