Jelly Slice

No recipe image available.'Jelly Slices' are three-layered dessert squares, a favorite treat in Australia.

Recipe Ingredients:

First Layer:
1 packet Marie biscuits (or use 20 vanilla-flavored wafers), crushed
3/4 cup (6-ounces) melted butter

Second Layer:
2 (14-ounce each) cans sweetened condensed milk
Juice from 2 lemons
1 1/2 tablespoons unflavored gelatine
1 cup boiling water

Third Layer:
2 (3-ounce each) packages raspberry or strawberry gelatin
2 1/2 cups boiling water

Cooking Directions:

  1. For First Layer: Combine the crushed cookies with melted butter in a bowl. Press mixture into a 9x9x2-inch foil-lined baking pan
  2. For Second Layer: Beat together ingredients in a bowl and pour on top of first layer. Refrigerate.
  3. For Third Layer: Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. When cooled, pour on top of second layer.

Makes about 24 squares.

Note: Be sure to pour the flavored gelatin (third layer) on top of the second layer before it starts setting - if not, it will not stick.
