  1. Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C). Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. In a small bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice. 
  3. Place peaches in an 8-inch (20 cm) square glass baking dish; sprinkle with half of the sugar mixture and toss gently to coat. Spread in a single layer. Roast for about 20 minutes (30 minutes if using frozen peaches) or until peaches are tender and lightly browned. Let cool slightly. 
  4. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, toast pumpkin seeds over medium heat, stirring constantly, for about 3 minutes or until seeds are very lightly toasted, add remaining sugar mixture to skillet and stir seeds for about 2 minutes or until toasted (golden brown) and glazed. Spread out on a piece of parchment paper and let cool. 
  5. In a small bowl, combine yogurt and vanilla. To assemble, divide half of the yogurt equally among dessert dishes and top with half of the roasted peaches, then half of the glazed seeds; repeat layers.
