  1. For pastry, place flour and salt in a food processor. Cover and pulse until combined. Add shortening and chopped butter. Cover and pulse until pieces are size of coarse meal.

  2. Drizzle 1 tablespoon water over flour mixture. Cover and pulse 4 to 5 times. Continue moistening and pulsing flour mixture, adding 1 tablespoon cold water at a time, until dough holds together. Gather dough and gently press together to form a ball; slightly flatten into a disk. Wrap dough disk in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to 2 days. If chilled for more than 1 hour, let dough stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before using.

Roll pastry dough disk, from center to edge on a lightly floured piece of parchment paper into a 13-inch round. Invert parchment paper onto prepared pan. Remove paper; gently ease pastry into pan; press pastry into fluted sides of pan; trim top edge even with pan. Refrigerate while preparing filling.

  4. For filling, heat chocolate, cold brew beverage, Kahlúa and chopped butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat for 3 to 4 minutes or until smooth, stirring frequently. Cool.

  5. Whisk eggs in a large bowl. Stir in granulated and brown sugars, corn syrup, vanilla and chocolate mixture until combined.

  6. Gently press chopped pecans into bottom of crust, without breaking through pastry. Place tart pan in a large rimmed baking pan. Pour filling into pastry-lines pan, Arrange pecan halves on top of filling in a spiral pattern.
