Wonderful Roasted Chestnuts

Roasted chestnuts are so comforting! Rich, warm, buttery and wonderful – roasted chestnuts are definitely one of winter’s little pleasures.


Yield: 2 servings


  • ½ lb. chestnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. With a sharp paring knife, cut a large X on the flat side of each chestnut, cutting through the shell and into the inner skin. This will allow steam to escape while the chestnuts are roasting.
  3. Arrange the chestnuts, cut side up, in a single layer on a baking sheet (I like to use a large cast iron skillet). Roast for 30 minutes, shaking the pan once in a while, until the shells burst open and the chestnuts are golden brown and fragrant.
  4. Allow to cool just until you can handle them, then immediately peel the chestnuts. Enjoy warm. Ahh, winter pleasures!
