hot buttered pumpkin seeds October 29, 2011 by Juls I used a wee too much butter on these. So much, in fact, that I had to dump them onto a paper towel midway through the baking process to soak off some of the butter before returning them to the oven. My house smelled of hot butter through and through. I think I gain weight just breathing in the air. Of course they are so delicious, you just can’t stop eating them.
