How to Toast Nuts

Toasting nuts adds crunch and intensifies their flavor. Oven toast at 350°F for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Or, cook on the stovetop in an ungreased skillet on medium heat until golden brown, stirring frequently.

    Could not get dessert to "set." It may have been our altitude at the time (5200 ft above sea level). I will try it again since we have moved where it is exactly at sea level.

    I made this recipe and it turned out very good. I was confused by the other ratings as to wishing the geletin was listed in the ingredients list and about not seeing where to use the cherry???? Maybe they should read instructions better? Overall I made it and it turned out great.

    As mentioned above it would really help to know where the cherry was supposed to come in, but improvised and put cherry pie filling on top. Worked out really well!
