A request for condensed milk recipes made me wonder if this was on here. I can't find it, so I'm posting it. It's a real old Aussie (and probably New Zealand) favourite, and is easy to make. I love it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine crushed biscuits and butter mixing well; press into greased 30cm X 23cm (12" X 9") pan and refrigerate.
  2. Combine condensed milk, lemon juice and gelatin mix.
  3. Mix well and pour over prepared base; refrigerate 2 hours.
  4. Mix jelly powder and boiling water together, then add cold water.
  5. Refrigerate until consistency of unbeaten egg white, pour over lemon layer.
  6. Refrigerate, then cut into squares when set.
  7. *I prefer a red jelly for this, but any flavour would be OK.

I made this last night to go with our dinner. It is a good jello dessert that we all like very much. I used peach jello and while it isn't very colorful, the taste of great. I served this with a fresh peach slice on top. Thank you for sharing.

This is one of those sweets that reminds you of when you were a kid. love it! Just personally i don't like mine too lemon-y so i just cut it down to 1 larger lemon.

This turned out great for me and reminded me of being a kid again! I had to add a little more buter to the base as i don't have a food processor to get the biscuits really crumby, but apart from that it was perfect, just like my mum used to make it! Thanks
