via Foodiful

Preheat the oven to 180°C (350D). Grease a 30 x 20cm slice tin with melted butter and line with baking paper.

Put biscuits in the bowl of a food processor and process until fine crumbs form.

Add melted butter and process until well combined.

Press mixture into the base of prepared tin. Freeze for 10 minutes or until set.

Combine condensed milk, zest, juice, and yolks in a bowl. Pour mixture over the base and spread evenly.

Put egg whites in the small bowl of an electric mixer and beat until frothy. With the motor running, add sugar,
1 tbsp at a time, beating well after each addition.

Beat until a thick shiny meringue forms. Fold coconut through the meringue. Spread meringue over slice filling.

Bake for 30 minutes or until the meringue is golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Cut into squares and serve.
