I did some research on different pumpkin seed recipes and took what I loved from several and came up with this one. I think it's a winner - a little sweet with a little heat. I just love them and I think you will, too. :)

How to Make Sugar'n'Spice Pumpkin Seeds

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Wash and dry 2 cups of pumpkin seeds. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place seeds in a single layer. Spray with cooking spray and sprinkle with coarse sea salt to taste. Place baking sheet in the preheated oven for 25 minutes.
  2. While seeds are baking, in a large bowl combine 3T sugar, 1/3 t ground allspice, 1/3 t cinnamon, 1/3 t cayenne pepper, 1/3 t cumin. Mix well and set aside.
  3. When seeds have finished toasting in the oven, place 3 T of butter on low heat in a pan. Add 1T brown sugar, firmly packed and 1 T white sugar. Mix well and add the seeds to carmelize them. This should take about 3-5 minutes.
  4. Add carmelized seeds to the spice mixture and coat thoroughly. Place the coated seeds back on the baking sheet in a single layer and allow them to air dry for 24 hours before storing. This will prevent them from turning soggy. Enjoy!
