For pastry, whisk together 1/2 cup flour and salt in small bowl. Cut in shortening by using a fork until coarse crumbs form. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon ice water; stir with fork. Add additional water, 1 tsp. at a time, just until dough holds together. Wrap in plastic wrap. Freeze while preparing filling or refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to 2 days.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. For filling, whisk together brown sugar, corn syrup, egg, melted butter, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Chop 1/2 cup pecans. Stir chopped pecans and, if desired, bourbon into brown sugar mixture.
Roll out pastry dough on a lightly floured surface into a 7-inch round. Line a 4-inch-round pie plate or ramekin with pastry. Trim and flute edges as desired. Pour filling mixture into pastry-lined pie plate. Arrange remaining 1/4 cup pecan halves on top; gently press into filling with the back of a spoon.
