Pumpkin Waffles

Pumpkin Waffles should taste like you're taking a bite into a pumpkin pie.  This recipe has an amazing flavor, and if you love pumpkin pie you will totally fall in love with these Pumpkin Waffles.

Cooking with foods that are in season is one of the best things you can do.  Not only do vegetables and fruits taste so much better, packed with flavor, but you can get them from local farms.  This helps your local economy and the environment, and provides you with the best tasting food you can ever imagine.  The fall harvest gives us some amazing squash, and pumpkin is one of them.  Pumpkin is extremely versatile, and can be used in many more recipes then just pie.

Pumpkin is delicious in bread, muffins, pancakes, waffles and all by itself.  I wanted to use pumpkin to make my absolute favorite sweet breakfast – waffles.  For me a good Pumpkin Waffle should taste like you’re taking a bite into a pumpkin pie.  This recipe has an amazing flavor, and if you love pumpkin pie you will totally fall in love with these Pumpkin Waffles.

I have also added a quick and simple recipe for pumpkin puree.  Sometimes, around this time of year canned pumpkin can be hard to find, selling out and what-not.  But, you can usually find small pie pumpkins available in the produce section of your grocery store.  They are pretty cheap, I bought one for 78 cents the other day, and will give your about 3 cups of pumpkin puree.  You don’t want to use too large of a pumpkin, the puree will turn out more stringy and not as flavorful as the smaller pie pumpkins.

    For many years I have been cooking a similar family recipe. I can’t wait to try this version.
