Easy Peasy Vanilla Slices

I love food..

... and I love easy peasy yummy food...


I used 2 packets of lattice flaky pastry biscuits
1 x 600ml cream (well I never said it's low cholestrol!!)
1 packet of vanilla instant pudding

and because I like it I included some rosewater and pink colouring


line a tray with baking paper and place a set of lattice biscuits over the base - edge to edge - just pretend you are matching patchwork blocks together....

you can see I cut some at the edges so they would fit nice and snug....
- the little slices then become lovely treats for little visitors....


beat the cream with the vanilla pudding so well mixed....


see how pretty it is with the pink and the rosewater just gives it a bit of a special flavour
 but you could just as easily add some of that yummy home made vanilla


layer the creamy vanilla instant pudding all over the base of biscuits


then add another layer of lattice biscuits... you need to check it matches the base biscuits in placement
eg: don't put a full biscuit over a half biscuit


you need to be careful because when it is set (after 15 minutes) you want to slice carefully through the vanilla to make the slices......


and here we are back at the beginning......


... personally I slice them in half - but it is great fun watching someone try and eat it when it is still together and all the middle comes squishing out.....


Not a new idea... but a yummy one....

On the sewing front progress is being made on this...

 .... and this .....
 .... and this.....

Righto, gotta go.. time for a cuppa ... and a pink vanilla slice....

Melody said...

Oh yum - I wish I lived closer - I'd run over right now and beg for one.

Marilyn said...

Ooh, havent had that in ages. While reading it I was thinking of the filling flowing out the sides. Not a slice to eat when playing ladies, is it. But that is the yummy part of it anyway.

Maria said...

and here I am trying to be good. The Vanilla Slice looks so devine.....
Love your sneak peeks Fiona...

Lyn said...

Yummy vanilla slice...So quick and easy..good old lattice biscuits (sadly unavailable here but at least then I have a chance of resisting the temptation!)

Yummy! My mum used to make a similar slice, but I think hers had cream cheese!

Sue SA said...

Yum! I haven't had this treat in a long time....I use Sao biscuits but then ice them, much prefer the idea of just using sweet biscuits. Stitching sneak peek looks good, look forward to a full reveal.

Yummi. Thank God I can't eat it through the net ( I'm on a diet)!

Kathy said...

This is my kids favourite home made vanilla slice :) I love it too - despite my hips protestations!

Bonnie said...

That looks delicious, both the sewing and the vanilla slice. We don't have those biscuits here in Canada but I may have to try them when we visit Australia next time.

Sheila said...

Really looks delicious , unfortunately we do not have those biscuits here but I could substitute something for them I suppose . Reminds me of the icecream sandwiches we used to get when we were camping in PEI , they were made with homemade icecream and homemade wafers , yummy!Now you have made me hungry and it is only 10:15 in the am :-)
hugs Sheila

I love that slice. i have a friend who makes it. I haven't tried it yet but I think I just might have a go. Does that count as baking???

Tanya said...

I have not seen these you years...a very yummy treat

Barb said...

That looks soooo yummy....I think I will come for a visit.

Narelle said...

This is one of those slices you need to eat in private so you can really enjoy it as it oozes out the sides :)

Looks like you've been busy ... sweet blocks and love your scrappy star quilt.
