    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare Pecan Pastry: Combine flour, pecans, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening and butter until pieces are pea-size. Sprinkle ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, over flour mixture; toss with a fork until moistened. Gather flour mixture into a ball, kneading gently until it holds together.

Lightly brush pastry edges with half-and-half; sprinkle with pecans. Bake 50 to 55 minute or until filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Serve with whipped cream.
