Followed the recipe exactly and turned out perfectly!!! After reading some of the not so great reviews I decided to not let my seeds dry before cooking. The added moisture made all the difference. Transferred the seeds to a cool cookie sheet then let them cool!!! So yummy!!!

Used my large pampered chef cookie sheet. Cooked well, did not burn. No foil. They do come out sticky to place in a air tight container when they are still somewhat warm.

USE parchment paper if you have it! The foil ripped when i stirred the seeds, I think parchment paper would have been a better choice. I transferred them to the paper after they were cooked, otherwise they'll stick to the foil after cooling. I did half the batch, 2cups of seeds; I did the 20min as directed, then the second 20min, I cut down to 10min, sprinkled the sugar, stirred, and cooked for another 15-20min. The reason I cut the cook time is because the recipe states the directions are based on the full batch, which would be more seeds to cook and hence more time needed. Sugar may brown, but that's ok, it's still really yummy! Tastes like toffee. I would add that I washed and dried my seeds overnight, this recipe should include that but doesn't.

I would have given this 5 stars if the cooking time wasn't too long. I only baked for 40 minutes total and these came out perfectly. With that change (and a little cinnamon), this turned out to be the best recipe for pepitas I have ever tried. So good!

DO NOT LET COOL ON FOIL! It will stick. I made half the batch and checked and stirred every 10 minutes for about 40 minutes. These came out hot and messy, when cool they tasted great. Worth a try once.

I have to give this recipe 3.5 stars because the instructions will cause you to burn the pumpkin seeds. Unfortunately, I let them go to long and they now have a burned sugar flavor. We will try to eat them anyway, but I wish I had taken them out of the oven about 15 min. earlier than I did. Just watch them closely, as all ovens vary. The first 20 min. went fine, it's into the second set of 20 min. when you should be aware that the pumpkin seeds may get overdone...be forewarned!

My kids went to town on these. I followed as instructed but scaled the recipe down to suit 1-1/2 cups of fresh seeds. Step #3 I put in for the 1st 20 minutes, which was fine, but barely got threw to the next 20 minutes as they were getting brown fast. So I pulled them out and dusted with the sugar, but noticed they were still browning really fast, so I stayed at the oven door and stirred every few minutes or so to keep them from burning. I removed them from the oven at about 5 minutes left from finishing the 2nd part of the 20 minutes stated in step #3. They wouldn't or couldn't bake for 60 minutes. When I removed them, I noticed the sugar melted into the honey glaze. So I dusted again with sugar for that wow factor and glad I did. They had that buttery sweet taste that my kids were saying tasted similar to kettle corn. Which I had to almost agree. Will make again.
