Neighbors stop by unexpectedly? Don’t panic. You can whip up this fun snack in less time than it takes to polish off a beer or two. Of course, the trick is to have these ingredients on hand at all times. This is easily accomplished, as pumpkin seeds last practically forever when kept in a cool, dry place in an airtight bag or jar.

Instructions
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
