My kids love these pumpkin seeds and want them every fall. A little bit of pulp in the mix really adds to the flavor, so don't rinse the seeds. —Gwyn Reiber, Spokane, Washington

"Very good pumpkin seed with a burst of flavor and a hint of heat that hits your tongue towards the end. These are a bit on the buttery side (not a problem if you like butter!!!) They took us 52 minutes total to bake them and we stirred them every 20 minutes. They were super easy to make and they taste great. They will be a nice addition to our holiday party this weekend!"
