Sugar and Spice Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Sweet Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Double or triple this recipe, depending on how many cups of seeds you have. One large pumpkin will generally yield 1 cup or pumpkin seeds, and smaller pie pumpkins will yield about the same amount. These can also be cooked over low to medium-low heat in the skillet.

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter or vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, or more, to taste
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • Preparation:

    Rinse seeds well and get as much of the pumpkin pulp off of them as possible. Some of the small pieces are going to adhere, but they won't hurt the seeds at all, and might even add a little more flavor. Pat dry with paper towels. Don't let them dry completely on the paper towels, because they might stick!

    Toss seeds with the butter, sugar, and spices.
    Heat oven to 300°. Spread coated seeds in a shallow baking sheet (I line a baking sheet with nonstick foil to make cleanup easier), turning from time to time, for about 45 to 60 minutes, or until nicely browned and crunchy.

Thanks! I've always just done them dry with salt. I'll try this when I do our seeds this weekend.
