  2. Melt butter onto a cookie sheet. Spread pumpkin seeds evenly over the buttered sheet and sprinkle with salt and water.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, shaking the pan every 4 minutes to ensure even baking.

These are a fun snack. We like ours with Lawry's Seasoning salt and I prefer cooking mine on the stove. That way you can monitor the seeds better and add more seasoning as necessary. These are always better after they have cooled awhile and become crispy - put them in a tupperware container to store.

These were pretty good. They taste like how you would buy them from the store. This is your basic pumpkin seeds. They were good though.

This recipe worked well. Although, the ingredients list 2 tbps of water and the recipe does not mention water. Is there a step missing?

This is perfect for parties. You can use spices to sprinkle over top as well. Such as Garlic powder, Cajun seasoning, Taco seasoning .etc.
