"Simply excellent! Very easy & so yummy. I typically make spicy seeds, but decided to try something different. Glad I did! I'll be making this again in a couple of weeks to share at the office. I did not have pumpkin pie spice so used cinamon, cloves & ginger - I also used peanut oil in place of the vegetable oil, as that was what I had on hand."
"WOW! Awesome flavor. I used butter instead of oil."
"These were the best pumpkin seeds I have ever made! I made some the traditional way, and some this way..not knowing if my family would accept the new recipe. These are clearly a hit! sweet, and salty. I followed the measurements exactly except I used butter instead of oil. The sugar diddnt carmelize right away, but I covered the pan for about 30 seconds, then stirred well and it worked. Try these you won't be disappointed."
"These are completely addictive. YUM. thank you for sharing!!"
"I loved the crunch from these pumpkin seeds - great texture. I didn't have pumpkin pie spice so I used cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. I think I would use a bit less cinnamon next time, though. It would be interesting to use this method to get the sugary crunch but also add some heat/spice. Looking forward to trying some variations!"
"I really enjoyed the sweet spice of these seeds. Typically I have made salted seeds. These make a nice topping to salads and are good for just plain snacking."
"These were so easy to make and delicious! Thanks for such a great recipe."
"these were pretty good- not the best I've ever had... maybe I didn't make them right?"
"Wow! I never would have thought to make "sweet" pumpkin seeds. Year after year I have been making seeds with butter and salt. Not anymore! Thanks!"
"Yum! A different take on pumpkin seeds. Sweet and delicious!"
"yummy!! I made my own pumpkin spice,easy to do My 6 year old daughter loved them-and she usually is not keen on seeds or nuts.Unfortunately my pumpkin did not have many seeds inside but i will be making these again.Beautiful contrast between salty and sweet!!!thankyou"
"I wonder if a person could OD on pumpkin seeds... I might have to start buying up all the leftover halloween pumpkins just for the seeds."
"Yum! So good. I accidentally sauteed them before baking, but they still came out great."
"This is a great way to have pumpkin seeds! So easy and nutritious. Thanks!"
"Mmmmmm....yummy! I've always made pumpkin seeds for the sake of tradition before - now I'll make them because they're so good! I followed the recipe exactly and was very pleased with the result. We even tried these seeds on a salad for a treat, delicious!"
"I'm not a big fan of pumpkin seeds but these were VERY good. They were very easy to make."
