Although I live in the city now, I was born and raised in the country in Wayne County, Ohio. Our county and the neighboring one, Holmes, had a high Amish population, and it is from one of my Amish friends that I received this recipe. It is traditionally served at weddings in some Amish circles.

  1. Drain pineapple, reserving juice; set aside 1/2 cup. To remaining juice, add enough cold water to measure 2 cups.
  2. In a bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water; stir in the juice/water mixture. Add pineapple and apples. Pour into a 13-in. x 9-in. dish coated with cooking spray; cover and chill until firm.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine sugar and flour. Stir in reserved pineapple juice until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat to low; cook and stir for 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Stir a small amount (or give the amount) of hot filling into egg; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; gently stir in cream cheese until smooth. Cool.
  4. Prepare whipped topping mix according to package directions. Fold whipped topping into cream cheese mixture. Spread over gelatin. Cover and chill until topping is set, about 3 hours. Yield: 15 servings.
