I've been meaning to post this recipe for about a year now. And since I just did the jello pretzel dessert recipe, let's keep with the theme.
My childhood is full of holiday memories that include my Grandma Doerman's super lime jello. (Check me out rocking that awesome denim jumper next to Grandma D.) Although, I do remember it particularly on Easter with ham and homemade rolls. I've carried on the tradition, serving it at Easter at our house each year. But, really it's fabulous anytime. Even for breakfast. The morning after.
- 1 large box lime jello
- 1/2 can crushed pineapple (drain and reserve juice)
Mix jello according to box. Add crusted pineapple and poured into a 9/13 pan. Chill until firm.
- 1 package of Dream Whip (found near the jello section in the supermarket)
- 1 box of cream cheese
- Combine pineapple juice and water to make 1 cup
- 2 eggs
- 2 Tbls. flour
- 1 1/2 Tbls. lemon juice
- 1 cup sugar
Make custard the same day as the jello is served. Mix the above ingredients and and cook over medium heat until thick. Cool and spread over the cream cheese layer.
