chestnut rolls

I am a member of the WV Chestnut Festival and always looking for a special recipe. Last week I read in freerk's blog about a his chestnut rolls. The photo looks wonderful. I contacted him a few days ago to see if I could get the recipe but received not reply. Does anyone have an easy recipe to make chestnut rolls with a crisp outside? Thanks.

Peel and crumble.   Add to a white hard roll recipe in a puree with water and egg white.

Roasted chestnuts taste similar to roasted potatoes but dryer.  So they could easily go as an addition into just about any recipe.

Not for rolls, but they might work OK?  Chestnut & Sage sourdough (with chestnut flour and chestnuts)
