ROASTING PUMPKIN SEEDS
Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray and spread them evenly across the sheet. Very lightly spray the seeds before roasting. Put them in the oven and bake at 300° for about 35 minutes til they're a toasted, golden brown. Salt the seeds to your preference and consider adding additional seasoning and spices such as roasted garlic powder, garlic salt, onion salt, ancho chili powder, Worcestershire, Cajun or accent seasoning. Allow the roasted pumpkin seeds to cool before eating. Store the seeds in an air-tight container or bag for up to a week to retain flavor and freshness.
