Ingredients
  • Vegetable oil, for the baking sheet
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 1/2 cups fresh pumpkin seeds (pepitas), cleaned of any large chunks of pumpkin, but some pulp is okay
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • Kosher salt
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and lightly oil the foil.

  • Melt the butter in a saute pan over medium heat. Add the pepitas, toss to coat in the butter and then add the sugar, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, cloves and 1 teaspoon salt. Spread the pepitas on the prepared baking sheet in 1 layer and bake, stirring once or twice, until golden brown all over, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool completely.
