I baked this as a side dish of a game stew. We usually have chestnut puree for Christmas eve but this is much better because it is lighter. Next time I might increase brandy to 1.5 - 2 Tbsp though. Read More

A delicately-flavored souffle. I used a 5-ounce package of shelled chestnuts pureed them in a food processor w yolks milk sugar and one tablespoon of good liquor (rum). Folded the whites in the yolk mixture. Needed just over 40 minutes in my 350 oven and still moist. Slightly sweet--but the sugar really brings out the chestnuts. Read More

I used hazelnuts instead of chestnuts. And I shucked and grind fresh nuts with a little water cause I didn't have puree. Could've been better if I had a better food processor but it was pretty good! Read More
