Ingredients

3 3-ounce packages orange Jell-O
3 cups boiling water
20-ounce can crushed pineapple
3 cups cold water
4 medium firm bananas, sliced
2-1/2 cups mini marshmallows
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1 egg, beaten
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 cup whipping cream, whipped
Nonstick cooking spray

Instructions

Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Stir cold water, bananas, marshmallows and pineapple into gelatin. Pour into 13x9x2-inch pan that has been coated with nonstick cooking spray. Refrigerate until firm.

In a saucepan, combine sugar and flour. Stir in pineapple juice until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat and cook 2 minutes longer. Remove from heat.

In a small bowl, stir a small amount of hot filling into beaten egg; return all to pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil, cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Cool.

In a mixing bowl beat cream cheese until smooth; add cooled egg mixture. Fold in whipped cream and spread over gelatin. Sprinkle with nuts and coconut, if desired. Serves 12.
