Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Immediately after carving the pumpkin, rinse the seeds thoroughly and blot dry with a paper towel. Spread evenly on an ungreased (or lightly sprayed) cookie sheet and bake in a 375 degree F oven for approximately 12 minutes or until they are crisp and slightly browned. Salt to taste. Check often, as cooking time varies with the wetness of the seeds.
