Well, I was just going to throw these seeds out~~I won’t say it was laziness or anything like that..haha! I just wasn’t looking forward to taking a half an hour to separate all the slimy seeds from the Pumpkin flesh! However, once I got past the slime factor, and saw what was becoming of these sweet seeds, …I was SO glad I saved them!
They’re so different from typical Pumpkin Seeds…sweet, slightly spicy, glazed little crunchy bites of toasty Pumpkiny goodness! Ahhh..Finally seeds that aren’t just good…they’re SUPER GOOD! 🙂
What you’ll need for approx. 2 FULL cups of Seeds:
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup Cinnamon /Sugar…mixed to taste
1 tablespoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 teaspoon Ground Ginger
A small dash of Cayenne Pepper…optional
1 teaspoon Salt
In a medium pot or microwave safe bowl melt the spices with the Butter,
Toss in your Pumpkin Seeds, coat them VERY well and spread them out evenly onto a sheet pan…
Bake them at 375 degrees for approx. 20-30 minutes~ KEEP AN EYE ON THEM…Sugar burns fast!
Let them cool…
They will crisp up as they cool, and become glazed and almost candy-like! Grab some! ~Enjoy! 🙂
