“This snack is so addictive you may want to double the recipe for a crowd. The raw pumpkin seeds (pepitas) crisp up as they cool so don't be concerned if they seem soft when you pull them from the oven.”

Directions

  1. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper or grease; set aside.

  3. Bake in top and bottom thirds of 350°F (180°C) oven, stirring once and rotating and switching pans halfway through, until puffed and slightly darkened, about 20 minutes. Let cool on pan on rack; break up clumps. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 2 days.) Makes 2 cups.
