"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."

raw cleaned pumpkin seeds (preferably from a sugar pumpkin)
white sugar, or to taste
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.
