These Pumpkin Waffles really hit the spot. They are crisp and perfectly spiced to smell like fall heaven. Then I topped these with freshly whipped cream, pecans, and warm maple syrup. I won't go back to plain waffles, at least not until January 1st.
It is amazing how much the weather and the date on the calendar dictate what we crave. If you offered me pumpkin anything January through September, I could only enjoy it in the smallest quantities. Then the calendar changes to October, and BAM!! Give me pumpkin!!! Pumpkin pie, and toasted pumpkin seeds are a given, but I love to use pumpkin in unexpected ways too.
