Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 20 mins
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Rinse and thoroughly dry your chestnuts.
Mark an 'X' on the flat side of your chestnuts with a knife. This is essential, because it allows the steam to escape while the chestnuts are cooking. Otherwise they may explode in your oven!
Place chestnuts, cut-side up on an aluminum lined tray. Bake for 20 minutes.*
*Note: Baking time may vary. Most recently I only made a handful of chestnuts in my tiny toaster oven, and it was done in 15 minutes.
Peel the shell off the chestnuts, and there you have it!
