  • 2 c Flour
  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • 1 c Unsalted butter, cold-cut into bits
  • 6 oz Cream cheese, cut into bits
  • 1/3 c Sour cream
  • 1/2 c Sugar
  • 1 tb Cinnamon
  • 1 c Walnuts, finely chopped

OVEN: 350 Grease baking sheets.
DOUGH: In a food processor, pulse flour, salt, butter, cream cheese and sour cream til crumbly.
Shape pastry into (4) equal- sized disks. Wrap; chill 2 hours or up to 2 days.
In a cup, mix together sugar and cinnamon.
Roll each pastry disk into a 9-inch round, keeping pastry chilled til rolled.
Sprinkle rolled pastry with sugar mixture, walnuts and raisins, dividing ingredients equally among rounds. Press lightly into dough.
With a chef's knife, cut each round into 12 wedges.
Roll wedges tightly from outside edge to point (making sure filling is enclosed, as raisins will burn if exposed.)
