An Australian White Christmas

"We may not get snow for Christmas, but we make a beautiful sweet slice called "White Christmas". Great for gift baskets - definitely an Australian icon. This recipe is from a clipping I have kept as a young bride circa 1989."

    An easy-to-make treat -- and very Australian. It is a little sweet for my tastebuds, so would probably cut back on the icing sugar in future. For those who are wondering, Crisco shortening is a good substitute for copha. Made for Pick a Chef. Thanks Catherine for being a great adoptee.
