  • Place seeds in a mixing bowl. Pour melted butter over seeds; stir to coat. Combine 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar (see Cook's Note), 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/2 teaspoon white sugar in a small bowl; mix well. Stir in vanilla extract. Spread sugar mixture over seeds, stirring to coat evenly.

  • Spread seeds over a baking sheet in a single layer. Combine 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl; sprinkle over seeds.

  • Bake seeds in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove baking sheet from oven, stir seeds, and spread evenly on baking sheet again. Combine 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in small bowl and sprinkle over seeds. Return seeds to oven for 30 more minutes.

  • Remove seeds from oven. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 teaspoon vanilla sugar over seeds, and return to oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven, pour into a serving bowl, and serve warm.

Cook's Note:

Actual baking time may vary depending on how wet or dry your seeds were to begin with.

Editor's Note:

Vanilla bean sugar can be found in specialty shops or online, or you can make your own by storing a clean, dry vanilla bean in a jar of granulated sugar. (This is a great way to get more flavor out of vanilla beans you've scraped and used for other desserts.)

These were missing ONE. SIMPLE. THING. Salt. Just a pinch of salt. Or salt to your taste. They just needed a bit to really make the roasted cinnamon goodness truly POP. Read More
