picking out any remaining pieces of pumpkin. Drain well and pat dry with a paper towel.

Pile pumpkin seeds on the cookie sheet and drizzle melted butter over the pile of seeds. Sprinkle on the sugar, cinnamon, and a pinch or two of sea salt.

Gently toss seeds until evenly coated and spread the seeds out evenly on the cookie sheet.

Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until lightly toasted, stirring seeds every 10 minutes and checking for doneness each time. Remove from oven and let the seeds cool for a few minutes.

Remove seeds from cookie sheet and serve!
