The Hubs does not care for pumpkin seeds and was so bummed last night when I made these. The entire house smelled so yummy like a pumpkin pie baking and he was very sad when he discovered it was not a pie but just seeds.
The kids and I enjoy them though!
My 4 yr old says they are very yummy and my 2 yr old keeps rubbing her belly in circular motions while saying "mmm mmmm I love punkin seeds".
