season them with salt, garlic powder, seasoning salt, cayenne
pepper or any other type of seasoning you prefer. Then spread
pumpkin seeds on cookie sheet in a single layer.

about an hour, flipping seeds every 15 minutes, or until pumpkin
seeds are roasted to a golden brown. Remove from oven and
Pumpkin seeds will
keep in the refrigerator for up to a year, or in an airtight
container at room temperature for about three months.
