Tips  

*To toast hazelnuts, bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350ºF oven about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Or cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
