October treat!

Here's one of my favorite treats that I only get to enjoy in October: Roasted pumpkin seeds. These are so good to snack on when carving a masterful jack-o-lantern face.

Immediately after emptying out the contents of your pumpkin, seperate the seeds from the pulp and rinse all the slime off. Blot dry with a towel and spread evenly on a cookie sheet (no need to add oil). Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes, or until golden and crisp. Check often after about 10 minutes to avoid burning.

These are perfect right out of the oven with a little popcorn salt (it's extra fine and sticks well). Equally good with some cinnamon-sugar (let them cool before adding), or even a little grated parmesean cheese.

Yummy!
