After carving pumpkins, we had a ton of raw pumpkin seeds, so I decided to give this recipe a try. They're a great, crunchy, tasty little snack! I'm only giving them 4 stars though because I did make some modifications after reading the reviews, and I think they would probably have turned out a bit bland if I'd made the recipe as written. To summarize my modifications:
-After reading up on roasting pumpkin seeds, I decided to take the advice to soak the seeds in salt water overnight before roasting.
-I used olive oil instead of butter.
-I used seasoning salt instead of regular salt.
-I quadrupled the spices
-I added a little black pepper (personal preference--my boyfriend likes pepper on EVERYTHING)
I had to add ten or fifteen extra minutes onto the bake time (maybe because of the soaking?) but after that they turned out great and highly addictive!
