  • 3 cups raw pumpkin seeds
  • water
  • salt
  • 2 tablespoon butter melted
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Scoop out the seeds from the pumpkin. Place the pumpkin seeds in a colander and run under water to rinse and separate the seeds from the everything else. Measure the pumpkin seeds in a cup measure.
  • Place the seeds in a medium saucepan.
  • Add 2 cups of water and 1 tablespoon of salt to the pan for every half cup of pumpkin seeds.
  • Bring it to a boil and let simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and drain.
  • Melt the butter in a bowl in the microwave.
  • Pour the boiled pumpkin seeds into a bowl.
  • Add the butter, sugar, cinnamon and a pinch of salt and toss the seeds so they are all covered.
  • Spray a baking sheet with non stick cooking spray and pour the pumpkin seeds on to the tray and spread them out.
  • Bake on the top rack until the seeds begin to brown 5-20 minutes, depending on the size of the seeds. Keep an eye on the pumpkin seeds so they don’t get over toasted.
  • When nicely browned, remove the pan from the oven and let cool on a rack.
  • Let the pumpkin seeds cool all the way down before eating.
