'Jelly Slices' are three-layered dessert squares, a favorite treat in Australia.
1 packet Marie biscuits (or use 20 vanilla-flavored wafers), crushed
3/4 cup (6-ounces) melted butter
2 (14-ounce each) cans sweetened condensed milk
Juice from 2 lemons
1 1/2 tablespoons unflavored gelatine
1 cup boiling water
2 (3-ounce each) packages raspberry or strawberry gelatin
2 1/2 cups boiling water
- For First Layer: Combine the crushed cookies with melted butter in a bowl. Press mixture into a 9x9x2-inch foil-lined baking pan
- For Second Layer: Beat together ingredients in a bowl and pour on top of first layer. Refrigerate.
- 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.
