You do have more control over pine nut when you skillet toast them, but you certainly CAN toast them in the oven(but it uses more energy.). I usually use 325 degrees and check them after 5 minutes. Pine nuts burn much more easily than other nuts. I often do a succession of nuts, to best use energy, and i store them on my frig door for easy access. Almonds, hazelnuts, pignoli.

DON'T "toast" them in the oven. Use a dry skillet and keep tossing them around over a medium flame until they begin to brown. Set aside to cool until you are ready to use them.
