Trick to cracking thin shell pecans?

brendastarlet | Dec 25, 2008 04:39 PM

A dear friend in Texas sent a big bag of thin-shell pecans for Christmas. We began shelling them tonight and couldn't figure out the best system for cracking them and getting both halves intact. We kept ending up with broken pecans that we had to dig out.

Do you crack around the pecan and then from end to end? Or just one crack end to end? Any suggestions welcome.
