To toast nuts, heat oven to 350°F. Spread nuts in ungreased shallow pan. Bake about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and fragrant. Watch carefully because nuts brown quickly. Or cook nuts in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown and fragrant.
