Spicy Roasted Butternut Seeds / Pumpkin Seeds

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Rita1652

I made Miss Annies Slow-Cooked Sugared Butternut and had the seeds left over so I couldn't throw them out. You can use pumpkin! I like the taste of the seeds without prewashing and drying them.(One less step).

I made a a stuffed pumpkin tonight and staring at the pile of seeds I said "I wonder if recipezaar has a pumpkin seed recipe..." This one caught my eye and lucky it did because it was great! I actually melted the butter and spices in a bowl, stirred in the seeds and spread them out on a cookie sheet. Couldn't be easier!
