  4. Add sugar, salt and pecans; pulse to combine.
  5. Add butter and pulse until fine crumbs form.

  7. Place pan on a baking sheet; bake until crust is golden and fragrant, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  8. For pie: In bowl of food processor fitted with metal blade, combine cream cheeses and sugar; process until mixture is smooth.
  9. Add lime zest and juice; pulse several times to combine.

Oh this was great, and a nice change from the condensed milk type of pie. It took a little longer than 2 hours to set for me, but thats likely my fridge :)
