    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.

    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 seeds were pretty good. I do think a little more pumpkin pie spice would've been good, as I couldn't really taste the pumpkin pie spice on lots of the seeds. Overall, these were pretty tasty pumpkin seeds. I will use this recipe again! Thanks!
