Excellent dessert! Very light and cool. Greatly appreciated today because it is very hot and humid. The orange Jello nicely balances out the very sweet pineapple filling. Well worth your short jaunt into espionage, Michelle!
This is very similar to a family recipe for "Rapelje Dessert" (probably named after Rapelje, Montana). My great-grandmother's notebook attributes it to a Mrs. Dunn. It has 1/2 c. butter creamed with 1 c. sugar, then twoo beaten egg yolks added. The Jell-O she lists is 1 package lemon plus one package of either strawberry or raspberry.
I can't say that I love it or not, because when I first tasted it I thought, yuck! But then I found myself going back for a little more! It definitely has a "funky" taste to it. But I would like to try it again for company just to see someone else's reaction. Thanks for an unusual recipe.
