We know you have leftover canned pumpkin. Don’t pretend it’s not in the pantry. We can see it from here. Do not, we repeat, do not make another pie. People will think you’re weird. Nobody’s even talking Thanksgiving leftovers anymore, yet everyone’s still in the mood for pumpkin confections. You see lattes, muffins and crazy seasonal bath products everywhere you look. The one place pumpkin truly belongs right now, we can definitively say, is in a waffle.

Moist, sweet and perfectly spiced, these waffles are the ideal way to use that can of pumpkin taking up valuable real estate in your kitchen while actually impressing a brunch companion or five.
