Make a tasty snack while carving your pumpkin!
What you will need:

~Cookie sheet

Step 1: Getting Started

First set the oven to 400'

Then cut open your pumpkin at the top.

Then spoon or grab all of the seeds/orange gooey stuff

Separate the seeds from the orange stuff, and put the seeds on a plate. 

it's okay to leave some orange stuff, but try to get it mostly off.

Step 2: The Oil

Put about 1 tablespoon of oil onto the cookie pan.
Using a paper towel, a brush or your hands, spread it around so that the pan is equally coated.
Then put all your seeds onto the pan, and spread them out evenly.

Step 3: The Salt

Sprinkle about 1/2  teaspoon of salt over the seeds.

Step 4:

Put the pan is the oven and set the timer for 15 minuets.
(You may have to put them in for more)

Step 5: Finishing!

As soon as you take them out of the oven, use your hands to stir them around.
go fast and only touch the seeds, not the pan.
Scoop them into a bowl, and Voila! Your done!

    Ah, that also explains the 15 "minuets" in step 4. That's a lot of dancing! ;^) jk

    we baked seeds at a pumpkin carving party we had and discussed the idea of soaking the seeds in salt water overnight before baking instead of salting on the pan. One member of our group had never done it any other way but we obviously did not do that as we wanted the seeds to eat that night at our party

    hmmm that's interesting, I'll have to try it.
    Maybe they taste like saltier or something

    If you put all the pumpkin guts in cold water, swish them around, and let them sit for about 5 mins, you can easily separate the guts from the seeds, and clean the seeds at the same time!

    Yummy!! I'll have to carve another pumpkin now!
