Sweet Spiced Pumpkin Seeds


Crunchy and sweet, these pumpkin seeds make a wonderful snack or even unique salad or dessert topping. Apple pie spice or an equal mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice with a dash of cloves can be used in place of the pumpkin pie spice.

1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
Dash salt
2 cups hulled pumpkin seeds

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the water, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and salt in a medium saucepan and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes, stirring to make sure the sugar dissolves. Add the pumpkin seeds and cook for five minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain the pumpkin seeds and place on a large baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the seeds are crisp. Store in an airtight container.

Makes 2 cups spiced seeds.
