Luscious Lemon Slices

Believe me,this is sinfully delicious and don't blame me if you get tempted for a second slice !!! I had to make some changes in the original recipe by varying the quantity of few ingredients used, lest they'd make the slices too sour and unpalatable even though they are supposed to be lemony !..As well to make the procedure easier I tried out a few steps in a different way.This change avoided the need for more utensils and bowls too.
To preserve the flavour of all types of sweets make it a point that you store them in odourfree containers that are kept solely for such goodies.. Do not use these containers for storing any savoury snacks or other preparations.I'd suggest Tupperware containers.

    TIPS:- A few tips to be followed for best results :- We don't want a hard tough slice.So pls do not over bake.. It should be taken off the oven while still little uncooked.. At this stage it will have a soft spongy and slightly glossy texture when touched at the center.

    At the same time it shouldn't be sticky on top. Do not bake it any longer.Remove from the oven as soon as possible at this stage...Let cool and glaze..Slice when the glaze sets..Store in an airtight box.

    For The Lemon Glaze:-Mix all the ingredients in a medium sized bowl and beat well using a spatula.. Spread it over the 'Slice" and let it set before cutting into squares.Take care to add only the specified amout of water.Else the glaze will be too runny and won't get set.
