How to Prepare Toasted Nuts for Baking

Prepare toasted nuts before making a batter or dough, except where a recipe indicates otherwise.

There are two methods for toasting nuts:

1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Spread the shelled nuts on a baking sheet in single layer and bake for about 10 minutes. Shake the pan midway to prevent sticking and scorching.

2. Toast the shelled nuts in a hot, dry skillet on the stove. Stir constantly until the nuts become aromatic, about five minutes.

Cool and then chop the nuts to the desired size.
