Fall Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

I got a great deal on some Pie Pumpkins last week, so I wanted to show some of the MANY things that can be done with pumpkins, outside the pie plate. One of my favorites are roasted pumpkin seeds, and there are so many ways to do them besides just salted. These seriously remind me of 'Cinnamin Toast Crunch' cereal, they are so good! You can use this as a template to play with. Throw in the seasonings you like, and see where it goes!

Fall Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
3/4 C Pumpkin Seeds
1/2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
1/2 Tbsp Butter
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Salt

Preheat oven to 275. Cut pumpkin in half and clean out the gunk.
  Separate the stinginess from the seeds and wash the seeds completely.
 On a paper towel, dry seeds completely.
 If you don't, the seasonings will not adhere as well. Mix together all ingredients except seeds.
Add in seeds and stir to coat. 
Place on a parchment or silpat mat lined baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes or so to ensure they don't burn. Remove when they are dry and crisp. Enjoy!
