Cinnamon Roasted Pumpkin Seeds - Weekend recipe

What to do with all those innards of a pumpkin you removed during carving?  Here is a great solution, make roasted pumpkin seeds.  They are tasty and good for you.  I start with a basic recipe for roasting seeds, then give a tasty flavored version which uses our awesome Cinnful Dessert Blend.  Created originally to replace pumpkin pie spice we have found this blend to be very good in other recipes as well.  Check out these Cinnamon Roasted Nuts.

Basic Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

1 1/2 cups raw whole pumpkin seeds
2 teaspoons butter, melted
1 pinch salt

Preheat oven to 300F. Toss seeds in a bowl with melted butter and salt. Spread the seeds out on a baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown.
