  • Brush generously with melted vegan butter mixture, and sprinkle pumpkin seeds on top.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Increase to 392 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius) and bake for about 10 minutes more, until golden.
  • Remove the pastry bites from the oven and carefully place them on a rack to cool, so the bottom remains crispy. .
  • Serve at room temperature or slightly warm


The next day, heat the pastries in the oven (not in the microwave) for a few minutes to restore the crispiness.
