I have to be honest, I have never once made or even tried a pumpkin seed. So this year as I was making my Easy Pumpkin Vase I decided to set them aside and try something new. I was digging through my spice cabinet and found some great flavor ideas but one that stuck out to me was my pumpkin pie spice. I didn’t really have a lot left so I decided to make my own. A little cinnamon, brown sugar, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger and you’ve got yourself some pumpkin pie spice. Now grab your pumpkin seeds and head on over to the kitchen.

The secret to making amazing pumpkin seeds, that do not burn is to soak and cook them in water before baking them. Most people skip this step because they are so excited to get their seeds baking and eaten. I find this is the most important step and if you skip it, your seeds will most likely burn in the oven.

After I made these, my husband sat on the couch with a cup of pumpkin seeds watching football for the rest of the afternoon and I brought myself to try one. Something I never thought I would want to try but when the aroma of pumpkin pie was coming from my kitchen I couldn’t resist.
