  • Cut butter into flour then mix it together until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Cut the cream cheese into small cubes and then "rub" into the flour/butter crumbs.
  • Knead this mixture until it forms a ball.
  • Separate the dough into two equal parts and wrap each part in plastic wrap and refrigerate for a few hours (at least 4).
  • To make fruit filling mix the raspberry jam together with sugar with the chopped toasted pecans and grated key lime peel.
  • Pre heat oven to 350°F
  • Once dough has chilled roll it out each half on a floured surface to about 9 or 10 inches. Then spread each dough circle with jam mixture.
