Now that my hubby will like! It ok I copy this to do it? Thanks too Lena and Belinda!

Forgot to add my recipe LOL. I was showing my hubby this and he wants! Soon!

I've not done much with Halloween but my mom showed me how to make the pumpkin seeds. I too mixed them with different snacks by adding them in or eating them plain! Very simple!

Wash pumpkin seeds from Jack-O-Lantern. Let them dry for one day. Spread on a buttered cookie sheet and lightly salt. Toast at 350 oven for 10 minutes or until golden.

Hi Belinda,
Although I can't think of a Halloween recipe at the moment I just wanted to say I love your Halloween theme and recipe that's posted. Glad Cornelia mentioned it at Goodreads.

Great recipe! I am copying it off. Okay, recipe... actually, I usually make use canned pumpkin to make my version of chocolate chip cookies...
I use one stick of butter and half a cup of pumpkin, then also add pumpkin pie spices...
