Rosewater Lime Transparent Pie

[Photograph: Sarah Baird]

This pie should not be served in regular-sized slices, but instead in very thin slivers: it is incredibly rich, and is best enjoyed in this delicate form. Explore playing up both sides of the dessert by pairing it with a cup of Turkish coffee for a warm and international bite, or keep it classic with a chilled slice and a trusty glass of frothy milk.

Note: If leaf lard is unavailable, butter or shortening can be used in its place.
