*To toast pecans: Preheat oven to 300 F. Spread pecans in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake pecans for about 25 minutes, stirring halfway. Remove from oven and let cool.
**To toast pepitas: Preheat a nonstick frying pan over medium-low heat. Spread pepitas in a single layer on the frying pan. Stir frequently until pepitas turn slightly brown and start to smell “toasty.” This will happen quickly! Pour pepitas immediately into a bowl or onto plate to cool.
