Kids' Favorite Pumpkin Seeds Recipe

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!"

"I hadn't made or eaten roasted pumpkin seeds since I was a kid, but for some reason this year I was hungry for them. I looked at a ton of different seed recipes and finally decided this one looked the tastiest. Made the recipe as written, (including not rinsing the seeds). We LOVED these - they have such a bold, yummy taste! Even with the cayenne, they aren't too spicy at all. I wouldn't be worried about serving it to kids like others have mentioned. I highly recommend this recipe!"

"I make this every Halloween now. It is the best roasted pumpkin seed recipe I've had! The Worcestershire sauce makes the recipe and I wouldn't leave it out. I think I made 5-6 batches last year and couldn't keep up with demand."
