Ingredients

  • 2 cups pumpkin seeds rinsed well and dried

Seasoning:

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper a little more if you like it spicy!
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Using a sharp knife, cut the lid of your pumpkin in a circle that is pretty. This is the top of the pumpkin where you need to enter with your big spoon.

  6. When the seeds have dried, toss them with the olive oil in a medium bowl.
  7. Mix together the seasonings and evenly coat the seeds.
  8. Place the seeds on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake for about 15.
  9. Flip the seeds and continue cooking for 10 minutes.
