I went to a Christmas party few years ago and I had a piece of vanilla slice. I liked it so much that I've been making it ever since.

have also made this vanilla slice but instead of puff pastry have used the lattice biscuits, just cover the bottom and top with them. so easy and delicious - 07 Jan 2014


I made recipe exactly as per recipe. It is fairly rich so I cut it into fairly small squares. Definitely a keeper! - 17 May 2015
