    I baked this as a side dish of a game stew. We usually have chestnut puree for Christmas eve, but this is much better, because it is lighter. Next time, I might increase brandy to 1.5 - 2 Tbsp, though.  -  24 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Just cooked it and it turned great. Had it as a side dish with game and quince compote.  -  08 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used hazelnuts instead of chestnuts. And I shucked and grind fresh nuts with a little water cause I didn't have puree. Could've been better if I had a better food processor but it was pretty good!  -  17 Apr 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
