    Third Layer
    1. In a sauce pan over medium/high heat- heat the pineapple juice, lemon juice, sugar, and flour. Stir so everything is dissolved

    3. Temper the eggs - Have the 2 yolks mixed in a bowl, next to you, and take a spoon full of heated mixture.
    4. Whip the heated mixture into the eggs
    5. Add the egg mixture to the saucepan, and continue to whip while the egg is cooking into the mixture. (Only takes a minute)

    7. Let cool for about 5 minutes
    8. Spread over the second layer (this is a thin layer)- place back in fridge

    1. Where is the recipe?

      • Weird…It should be at the bottom of the post. I’ve had one other reader ask about a recipe as well. I wonder if the recipe card software is malfunctioning? Please, Take another look and let me know if you still can’t find the recipe.
