Rosy and Mary make Key Lime Pie, don't miss this!
Key Lime Pie Baking Adventures at Celi’s Deli!!
Chances are that if you’ve been on the island, and needed a quick bite for breakfast, lunch or afternoon snack, you may have stepped inside Celi’s Deli. Part of the pioneer Holiday Hotel on Barrier Reef Drive, Celi’s Deli is manned by a team of efficient, smiling, WONDERFUL ladies who make you feel like you’re their favorite ‘sweetie’, ‘darling’, ‘lovely’, etc. We have been fortunate to work right next door of them for almost ten years, and it feels like we have built-in moms and aunts who feed us and make us happy! One constant has been Rosy, a peach of a woman who makes the sweet sugary treats that we occasionally buy (beside the toasty tortillas, Johnny cakes, burritos and sandwiches).
Rosy makes a mean Key Lime Pie that is piled so high with merengue, with a homemade crust and thick, creamy custard that you just cannot resist! After years of watching pie after pie disappear shortly after being put out on display, I had to get into the kitchen and learn her secrets!! This is a perfect pie to make for Mom on Mother’s Day. It’s also really good for a weekend get together with friends. I mean, really, you don’t need me to tell you when to eat a pie – if you can make it and have the ingredients, why not do it and eat it!
