Fruit & Gelatin Salad

Fruit & Gelatin Salad

2 cups boiling water, divided
1 package (3 ounces) lemon gelatin
2 cups ice cubes, divided
1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple, liquid drained and reserved
1 package (3 ounces) orange gelatin
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup reserved pineapple juice
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon butter
3 large bananas, sliced
1 cup whipped topping
1/2 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese

In a large bowl, combine 1 cup water and lemon gelatin. Add 1 cup ice cubes, stirring until melted. Stir in pineapple. Pour into a 13-in. x 9-in. dish coated with cooking spray; refrigerate until set but not firm.
Repeat with the orange gelatin, remaining water and ice. Stir in marshmallows. Pour over lemon layer; refrigerate until firm.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Stir in reserved pineapple juice until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat.
Stir a small amount of hot filling into egg; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat; stir in butter. Cool to room temperature without stirring. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until chilled.
Arrange bananas over gelatin. Stir whipped topping into dressing. Spread over bananas. Sprinkle with cheese. Yield: 12-15 servings.
