Pumpkin Pie Seeds

Recipe by  

"The pumpkins are carved, the pies are baked, but how should you toast those pumpkin seeds? My favorite variation by far are these sweet pumpkin pie-spiced seeds. I've tried the stovetop method for coating the seeds, but they were too sticky and hard for my tastes, and easy to burn too. Try this baking method instead and they'll turn out perfectly toasted and crunchy."

Directions

  1. Place pumpkin seeds, water, and salt in a saucepan, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to medium; boil seeds for 10 minutes. Drain seeds but do not rinse. Pat seeds dry with paper towels and spread out onto a work surface or a baking sheet for 30 minutes to dry.
  2. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  3. Melt butter in a large microwave-safe bowl until melted, about 1 minute. Toss seeds in the melted butter and mix in 1 tablespoon sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and cardamom; toss again to coat seeds thoroughly with spices. Spread seeds out onto the prepared baking sheet in a single layer.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until toasted and crunchy, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Stir several times during baking. Sprinkle toasted seeds with 1 tablespoon sugar or as desired; cool before serving.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Sugar pumpkin seeds work best in terms of edible shells, but carving pumpkin seeds will work too.

I did not boil the seeds. I just rinsed them, let them air dry for about 20 min. then mixed them with the butter, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, ground cloves and nutmeg (didn't use cardamom) and baked. My boys LOVED them!!!!

This is good, but I am told regular pumpkin seeds with salt and old bay seasoning is better. I did change my personal pumpkin seed recipe to boil the seeds first, let them dry, then put them in melted butter and seasoning to help it stick.
