"I let my pumpkin seeds dry out overnight. I didn't have pumpkin spice so I used cinnamon instead. I also added about 2 tablespoons of melted butter. They turned out delicious!"

"Very good, but made a few adjustments that made it a bit better... Melted 1/8c of butter with 1/4c brown sugar, 1/4tsp cinnamon, and dash a vanilla extract then shook in ziplock bag with approx 1c pumpkin seeds and baked on 275 degrees for 30min flipping occasionally. Delicious!"

"Yum!! I doubled the seeds to 2 cups but kept everything else the same and they are delicious. I will definitely be making these again!"

"I would melt butter and toss the seeds in butter before adding the sugar and spice. My seeds didn't glaze either and all the sugar is in the bottom of the bowl. I was quite disappointed. Next time I will add butter first."

"I doubled the recipe. May need to reduce sugar next time to only 1/4 cup instead of 1/2...a bit too much sweetness! But otherwise good!"

"Nice change from my regular roasted seeds! Mine had sat a few days before I made the recipe, and about halfway through the cooking time I added a tablespoon or so of water and stirred."

"You shouldn't dry your pumpkin seeds before you make this recipe. If your seeds are dry, just coat them with a little vegetable oil. It works great. Just made this recipe and it's delicious."

"There must be somethign missing from the recipe..like butter or something. I made these and the brown sugar mixture didn't even stick to the pumpkin seeds...I just added some butter so we'll see if that helps."
