Roasted Chestnuts

Roasted chestnuts are one of my favorite holiday snacks.  My mom always had little bowls of roasted chestnuts around the house as soon as the weather really got cold.  They remind me of childhood and make me want to wrap myself in warm clothing and sit in front of the fire. 


Use as many chestnuts as you would like.

Preheat the oven to 425

With a paring knife, cut an x on the flattest face of each chestnut.

Put them on a baking sheet cut side up and roast for about 20 minutes.

Let cool, put on your warmest socks, wrap yourself in your softest sweater, peel and enjoy!
