Lemon Slice is a favourite for many! It has been around for as long as I can remember and has always been a great slice to whip up when guests are coming over or when you need to take plate (surprisingly I have never put it on my blog!).

I thought I would do a little twist on this traditional slice and make it in bite form. Who doesn’t love bite size treats? This is a delicious little sweet to serve at afternoon tea parties, for high tea or just because.

Warning: these are so delicious you wont stop at one!
