I had guests over for dinner Friday night. And I finally got to try out the jelly slice recipe my sister, Shurooq, had told me about. I'd bought all the ingredients required a month ago but never got into the mood to make it until now.
Like I said, Hafizka is not into sweets much so I didn't want to make unless I have people to eat them. Or else it would end up in my tummy... adding more pounds :-| ... and that's not good as I've been struggling to get rid of all the excess weight pregnancy has given me.
I had over 2 families... 5 kids and 4 adults.... just the occasion to make it!!
It's a simple enough recipe:
First I put one packet (85g) of Cherry Jelly powder(use any flavour u like) in a cup of warm water... stirred until it dissolved completely. Kept it aside.
Then I made the crust with 6-7 digestive biscuits and 3 tablespoons of melted butter. Pressed it firmed to the bottom of a medium sized square baking dish... then put it in the fridge for firming...
Next I made the middle gelatin + condensed milk layer... in half cup warm water I put 3 teaspoons gelatin powder. After it had completely dissolved I added the condensed milk (395g) ... mixed it well and poured it on top of the crust I made...
After the gelatin layer had firmed I added the jelly. For me it took hardly 10-15 minutes for each layer to firm. Check whether the gelatin layer is firm enough before pouring in the jelly...
Simple Ingredients. Easy to make. And Yummy yummy! :)
My guests seemed to love it. Hafizka liked it too. I'm not a big fan of anything jelly... but it was beautiful to look at. Everything we make should be beautiful coz first we devour with our eyes.. then we taste.. :)
