Frosted Tropical Salad

This is another vintage recipe from a family recipe file.
It's another All American Dessert that's crazy but delicious!
I could certainly write and entire segment on Jello Salads.

1 package( 6 oz.) Lemon Jello
2 C boiling water
2 C Ginger Ale ( I was raised on Vernor's and it's the only one I'll use.
1 can ( 20oz.) crushed pineapple ( drain and save the juice)
1 C miniature marshmallows
2 bananas, sliced
1/2 C sugar
2 TBS flour
1 egg, beaten
2 TBS butter
1 C heavy cream, whipped

In a bowl , dissolve Jello in boiling water
Stir in Ginger Ale
Refrigerate until partially set

Fold into Jello:

Pour into a 9"x13" casserole dish
Refrigerate until firm

Make the Topping:
Combine sugar and flour in a saucepan.
Whisk in pineapple juice and egg
Cook on low heat until thickened,, stirring constantly

Remove from heat , add butter until well combined, transfer to a bowl
Cool to room temperature and then refrigerate until completely cooled
Fold whipped cream into cooled mixture and Frost the Jello with the topping and chill overnight.

Peace in the Kitchen!
