1 egg white

2 teaspoons commercial Cajun seasoning powder

1 teaspoon safflower oil

8 ounces shelled, unsalted pumpkin seeds

8 ounces lite cream cheese, softened

Fancy crackers

Cayenne powder to taste

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg white, cajun seasoning, and safflower oil. Add the pumpkin seeds and stir to coat.  Spread the seeds on a non-stick baking sheet, and sprinkle with the salt.  Bake the seeds for 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes.

Remove the seeds from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes.  Place them in the refrigerator if you need them to cook down quickly.

Place the softened brick of lite cream cheese in a medium mixing bowl.  Stir the seeds into the cream cheese and then place the mixture into a small, attractive serving dish.  Place the dish on a platter and then put the crackers around the dish.
