I have really great memories of my mom roasting chestnuts for us.  Nothing warms your freezing cold mitts like these naturally sweet buttery morsels! 

Slice an "x" mark through the skin of chestnuts (be careful, they're slippery!), cut them on a dishtowel. Roast at 425 degrees for 20-30 minutes stirring them occasionally. Let cool slightly and peel while still warm.
