1/3 cp sugar
1 TB baking powder
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

In another bowl, mix
3/4 cp milk
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cp melted butter
1/4 cp melted shortening,
1 extra large egg
Pour wet ingredients into dry and whisk together to create batter which will be slightly lumpy. Use this to make your waffles!
For the topping, melt 2 Tb butter in a skillet. Add 2 peeled and sliced apples and cook for about 4 minutes or until apples are slightly browned. Add 1/4 cup maple syrup and 1/2 cup toasted walnuts and toss to coat. Then pour this fabulous-smelling-and-even-better-tasting concoction over your waffles and prepare to roll your eyes with bliss.
And make sure you invite me for breakfast!
