Recipe by Erin Justice
I found this recipe in a magazine about 6 years ago. I made this a few years later, and loved it! It was a fun alternative to make around the holidays. It was hard to find the chestnuts, but if you have a "World Market" store around, they sell a jar of chestnuts around the holidays for a fairly reasonable cost. I had never had chestnuts before, and was surprised when I opened the jar to find they are semi-soft, and very easy to work with. Enjoy!
