Place whole, shelled hazelnuts in a baking pan. Bake at 350°F (180°C), stirring frequently, for 15 - 17 minutes or until lightly toasted. Remove from pan and immediately wrap in a double thickness of paper towels. Place wrapped nuts in a resealable plastic bag and seal. Allow the nuts to steam for five minutes to loosen the skin. Roll the enclosed nuts back and forth on a hard surface to separate them from their skins.
