- 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.
- 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.
- Stir in sour cream so that it forms a dough.
- Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide in half; pat each half into a 7 in x 3 in rectangle.
- Wrap in plastic and refrigerate 30 minutes; place in freezer for 15 minutes.
- Remove dough half from freezer and roll out to a 28 in x 5 in rectangle.

- Transfer to a parchment paper lined baking sheet; cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for 4 to 12 hours.
- Repeat with other half.

I've been tracing my roots for at least 10 years. One branch came to America just after the Mayflower in the early 1600s. Others came in the early 1700s, late 1890s. So, my American roots run pretty deep and I am deeply patriotic. Just wish someone had thought to same me some land!</p>
