    Recipe for the Holiday: Sweet and Salty Pumpkin Seeds

    With Halloween coming up, I think I'd share this wonderful recipe I found for sweet and salty pumpkin seeds.
    (I have not tried this recipe yet, but I plan on trying it once we buy pumpkins!)

    Sweet and Salty Pumpkin Seeds - serves about 8

    Ingredients:
    2 cps fresh pumpkin seeds (from 2 med, pumpkins), rinsed and patted dry
    2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
    2 tbsp granulated sugar
    1/2 tsp kosher salt
    1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

    Direction:
    >Heat oven to 300 degrees F. Spread the seeds on a rimmed baking/cookie sheet and bake until dry throughout, 50 to 60 minutes.

    >Increase oven temperature to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, toss the seeds with the other ingredients. Return the seeds to the baking sheet and toast until golden brown, 10-15 minutes.

    >Serve or store!


    If anyone tries this, please tell me how it turned out!
