  • Dough
  • 5 to 5-1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 envelopes Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Instant Yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup butter OR margarine
  • Cream Cheese Filling
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • Lime Glaze
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut, toasted


  1. Combine 2 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast and salt in a large bowl. Heat milk, water and butter until very warm (120° to 130°F). Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
  2. Make Cream Cheese filling by combining cream cheese, sugar and lime juice. Beat until smooth.
  3. Divide dough in half; roll each to 15 x 10-inch rectangle. Spread evenly with Cream Cheese Filling to within 1/2-inch of edges. Beginning at long end, roll up tightly as for jelly roll. With sharp knife, cut each roll into 12 pieces. Place slices cut sides up, in 2 greased 9-inch round pans. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.
  4. Make Lime Glaze by stirring together powdered sugar and lime juice in a small bowl until smooth.
  5. Bake at 350°F for 25 to 30 minutes or until done. Remove from pans; cool on wire racks. Drizzle with Lime Glaze, sprinkle with pecans and coconut.
