Orange Jello Supreme

In the record-book of Mormon jello's, this jello is the best. 
By far. 
Like, I search for it before getting meat, at every ward Christmas party in hopes of piling my plate full of it before it's gone. 
But I only ever find it if I'm in an "established" {old ward with old ladies} ward. 
This year, there was no such luck, so I had to turn to my mother for the recipe, only to find out, it's been in our family cookbook ALL ALONG!! 
So naturally I had to make it! 
1- 6 oz pkg orange jello
1 large can CRUSHED pineapple, drain juice out well and RESERVE
2 cups cool whip
8 oz cream cheese, room temp
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp flour or corn starch
1 C pineapple juice
1Tbsp lemon juice
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 C finely chopped pecans {optional}
Make jello according to directions on the package. 
Pour into a 9 x 13 baking dish and add drained pineapple. 
Mix well and place in fridge until firm. 
While Jell-O is setting up, beat Cool Whip and softened cream cheese together until smooth. 
Store in fridge until ready to use.
Mix flour and sugar together in a small sauce pan. 
Add pineapple juice and lemon juice and stir well on medium heat. 
Stir in beaten eggs and cook slowly until thickened, stirring occasionally. 
Cool completely.
When Jell-O is completely set, spread on the Cool Whip, and then the pineapple custard. 
Sprinkle with chopped pecans. 
Store in fridge until ready to serve.
