    I have used a 450 degrees oven and roasted them for 15 to 20 minutes. Cooked just right.

  3. Great recipe. I thought I was going to need Sea Salt with it but did not need to add anything else because it tasted great as is. Will make this recipe again soon.

  4. Great recipe! Simple and very tasty.

    Is butter, macadamia oil, or hazelnut oil and acceptable substitute for the oil/fat?
