AI bought organic raw nuts for some holiday cookies I'll be baking. I was wondering if toasting the nuts first would help add a little extra flavor to the cookies. I'll be working peanuts, walnuts, and macadamia nuts. If so, any recommendation on how to go about toasting them? Thank you.

Bake on a cookie sheet at 350F.  Check after 3 minutes and every few minutes thereafter.  Some nuts toast quickly, some take longer.  Do not let them burn.  This can happen quickly.

AI use a dry skillet on top of the stove. Easier to watch.

It does happen fast. In fact faster than I could ever keep up with and I gave up trying to use the oven. I use a dry skillet and swirl and flip and get it just the way I want and often I have to remove it from the hot skillet to stop the browning. I use a nice heavy skillet.


My never dying admiration for matthewkyrankelly and all who can toast in the oven.

AI use CMC too. cs works almost as well and is readily available.
