Teresa's Saw Dust Salad

I was so excited this year when Teresa offered to bring the
Sawdust Jello Salad to dinner on Thanksgiving.  This is a
very time consuming dish but worth all the work. This
dessert is very filling and weighs at least 5 pounds.  Thanks
again Teresa, we love you but your jello more!!
I just saw another version of this recipe.  Clich here to see it.

13 x 9 pan
1 large orange jello
1 large can crushed pineapple (drained)
3-5 bananas
1 pkg mini marshmallows
5 tablespoons flour
1 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
2 cups pineapple juice
2 cups cool whip
8 oz cream cheese

Dissolve jello in 2 cups hot water, add 1 1/4 cups cold water, add pineapple, bananas & marshmallows, refrigerate until set.
Make custard with 5 tablespoons flour, 1 cup sugar, 2 egg yolks beaten, 2 cups pineapple juice. Blend all ingredients, place in microwave oven on high power for 3 minutes, remove, stir, continue microwaving, removing at 3 minute intervals until you have cooked custard a total of 12 minutes. Cool and pour over gelatin.  After custard has set, make topping by beating cream cheese until fluffy. Add cool whip and beat until thoroughly blended. Top custard with topping and refrigerate until ready to serve. Photobucket
