Date Slice with Lemon Icing
2 cups S.R. flour (300g)
1 cup brown sugar (200g)
125 g butter, softened
1 cup finely chopped
dates (170 g)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk, 125 ml
Combine sifted flour and sugar in a bowl, rub in butter.
Press half the flour mixture into a greased lamington tray. (20 cm. x 30 cm.)
Add dates, egg and milk to the remaining flour mixture; spread over base.
Bake in a moderate oven for about 30 minutes or until lightly browned.
While still warm glaze with lemon icing, and mark into squares, then cool in tray.
Add enough lemon juice to 1 1/2 cups Icing Sugar to make a thick paste. If it’s too runny add more icing sugar.
