Directions

  1. In a food processor, process brown sugar, pecans, and salt until pecans are coarsely ground; add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal; transfer to a bowl.
  2. Prepare the dough by adding flour, sugar, yeast, salt, butter and shortening to the food processor; pulse until mixture resembles a coarse meal; transfer to another bowl.
  3. Stir in sour cream so that it forms a dough.
  4. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide in half; pat each half into a 7 in x 3 in rectangle.
  5. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate 30 minutes; place in freezer for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove dough half from freezer and roll out to a 28 in x 5 in rectangle.
  7. Cover half the dough (lengthwise) with half the filling, then fold over and pinch edges to seal; shape into an oval by inserting ends into each other and pinching to seal.
  8. Transfer to a parchment paper lined baking sheet; cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for 4 to 12 hours.
