A word of caution before you jump into this recipe. Pine nuts can be pretty expensive. I’ve paid as much as $17 a pound for them. Thank God this recipe does not need more than 1/2 cup.

The simplest way to toast pine nuts is to add them to a small dry skillet (no oil) and over medium-low and cook them, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes. The pine nuts should be golden brown. Watch them carefully as they can easily burn.

The only challenging part with this recipe is making sure you don’t burn the butter, garlic or pine nuts when cooking them in the skillet. If the butter starts turning brown you’ve overcooked them.
