1 Place a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Rinse the chestnuts and pat them dry. Place the chestnuts flat-side down on a cutting board. Carefully cut an X on the top of each with the tip of a small sharp knife.
2 Place the chestnuts on a large sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Fold one end over the other to enclose the chestnuts. Fold the ends over to seal. Place the package in a baking pan. Roast the chestnuts until tender when pierced with a small knife, about 45 to 60 minutes.
3 Transfer the foil package to a cooling rack. Leave the chestnuts wrapped in the foil for 10 minutes. Serve hot.

"I saw lots of recipe software for PC computers but I was having a hard time finding really good mac recipe software. I'm so glad I discovered Cook'n! It's so nice to have all my recipes in a computer recipe organizer. Cook'n has saved me so much time with meal planning and the recipe nutrition calculator is amazing!!!
My favorite is the Cook'n Recipe App.
