Orange Delight

Remember those congealed salads that show up at family get togethers and potlucks?  Well, this is a good one to show up with!  I know that it sounds like something your grandmother might make but I think its time to bring back some more old recipes.  This can be made sugar free too.

Orange Delight

1 lg orange jello
20oz crushed pineapple, drained reserving the juice
8oz cool whip
8oz cream cheese, softened
2T lemon juice
3/4c sugar
2T AP flour
2 eggs beaten
1/2c chopped pecans

Make jello according to package instructions and add the drained pineapple.  Pour into 9x13 pan and sprinkle with 1/4c chopped pecans.  Congeal in refrigerator.  Combine cream cheese and cool whip and layer on top of jello.  Add water to pineapple juice to equal 1 cup of liquid.  To juice add lemon, sugar, flour, and eggs.  Microwave until thick stirring every 2 mins then allow to cool.  Once cooled, layer on top of cream cheese mixture and top with remaining pecans.  Refrigerate 1hr before serving.
