Jelly Rolls and Jelly Slice

Moda Ruby
 I have bought these fantastic Ruby Jelly Rolls, Charm Pack, and Layer Cake.The colours just jumped out at me .Now, the big question is what to make with them. Any ideas?
 Here in Australia it is hard to get all three co-ordinating  sets at a reasonable price but a visit to the Want it,Need It, Quilt it site changed all that. Please visit Jane's site if you get the chance, great service and very very good prices for us Aussies.
As for the Jelly slice. It is one of the most popular things at our weekly Friday morning tea at school. If it is our team's turn (we have team's of six) it is expected that I bring the Jelly Slice. It is easy to make and of course no cooking in the oven.

Jelly Slice Recipe
  • 1 packet Milk Coffee biscuits (think they may also be called digestive biscuits, also Marie biscuits)
  • 6 ozs butter melted
Crush biscuits and add melted butter. Place into an 11 inch x 7inch x 1 inch cooking pan, flattening with your fingers if you need to.
Allow to set in refrigerator before preparing the filling.
  • 1 tin of condensed milk
  • 3 teaspoons gelatine dissolved in 1/2 cup of boiling water
  • 2 -3 tablespoons of lemon juice- need to be fresh 
Mix all the ingredients together and carefully pour over the base.
Refrigerate until set.
Jelly Topping
  • 1 packet of red jelly (strawberry, raspberry etc) + 2 teaspons gelatine
Make up the jelly according to instructions on the packet but add the extra gelatine to the jelly crystals. Allow to partially set but it should still be runny. I generally put the jelly in a jug so that I can carefully pour it over the base. At this point carefully pour on filling and then refrigerate until the jelly is fully set. Carefully cut into approximately 24 pieces.
