Prep Time: 30 Minutes.
Total Time: 5 Hours.
1 (3 oz) pkg. ladyfingers, split, divided
1-1/2 cups boiling water
1 (8 serving box) “Island Pineapple” flavor gelatin
1 (8 oz) can crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
1 cup cold water
1 (8 oz) tub frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
1 (11 oz) can mandarin oranges, drained
1. Line the bottom and sides of a 9 x 5″ loaf pan with plastic wrap. Stand enough ladyfingers, cut sides in, to evenly fit along sides of pan.
2. Stir boiling water into gelatin in a large bowl. Stir for at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Stir in the pineapple with its juice and the water. Refrigerate about 1-1/4 hours or until slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg whites). Gently stir in 2 cups of the whipped topping and the oranges. Spoon into prepared pan. Arrange remaining ladyfingers, cut sides down, evenly on top of gelatin mixture.
3. Refrigerate for 3 hours or until firm. Place serving plate on top of pan. Invert, holding pan and plate together; shake gently to loosen. Carefully remove pan and plastic wrap. Top with remaining whipped topping. Store leftover dessert in refrigerator. To Serve: Cut into slices, as you would for bread.
Suggestion: Garnish with peeled kiwi slices and star fruit slices just before serving if desired.
