Sprinkle with half of the pecans. Fold 1 of the 24-inch-long sides
over filling; brush other side with water and fold over the top.
Pinch the dough to seal well.

an oval. Seal ends together. Flatten dough slightly with hands.
Repeat shaping with remaining dough. Cover the ovals of dough and
let rise till a slight indentation remains in the dough when touched,
