Toss your pumpkin seeds in cinnamon & sugar, then roast them up. Turning your seeds into little churro bites. CINNAMON SUGAR PUMPKIN SEEDS will surely become a favorite Halloween snack, making carving your jack o’ lantern even more fun.
My favorite kitchen items I used to make this recipe for CINNAMON SUGAR PUMPKIN SEEDS.
SHEET PAN: I love using a larger sheet pan while cooking because I am feeding my family of seven. I love aluminium for when I do sheet pan meals. I would start with this 13 by 18 half sheet pan. I love these pans so much that I have 9!
POTS: So I am a total pan snob after having an assortment of brands in our cupboard over the years. After getting some Calpho pans on sale at my local grocer, I won’t try anything more. They are affordable and durable – a win, win in our home.
MEASURING SPOONS: I have to have a metal set of measuring spoons on hand. The plastic ones just don’t last long in our house partly due to the garbage disposal.
Don’t forget to pin this recipe for my CANDIED ALMONDS to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
