Tips

Tip: Whether you're carving jack-o'-lanterns or prepping a pie pumpkin, save the seeds for these tasty treats. Squash seeds work too! (Try butternut, kabocha or spaghetti squash seeds.) To get the seeds recipe-ready: Place them in a bowl of warm water (the seeds float to the top, making them easier to separate from the threads) and remove any flesh that's sticking to them. Drain and pat with a towel to dry well.

To make ahead: Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
