Note: If you don't have a tart pan with a removable bottom use a regular pie pan. Or even a cake pan taking care to press in the dough for the crust on the sides to only pie height -- about an inch.

Take care to use raspberry preserve and not jam. A preserve contains the whole fruit or large pieces/chunks of fruit. Second best is raspberry pie filling, available bottled or in tins in gourmet food stores or online.
