Okay so I changed it up a little. I used butter instead of cooking spray and added Worcestire. Also I didn't measure the spices and cooked them much longer (40min) at 300 bc another recipe I was making simultaneously called for the lower temp. Still the flavor was phenomenal. The kids didn't care for it but I love it.

Near perfect! A bit heavy on the cumin and they were too spicy for the kids due to the cayenne. I ended up mixing them with a sweet cinnamon pumpkin recipe from this site and the result was phenomenal! Sweet, spicy, salty....perfect!
