Come September 1st we start dreaming of cardigans and scarves, maybe even a light jacket. Even though lovely autumn is often more than a month away, we’ll take any excuse to cook cozier. You could simply add some of the warm spices here—cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg—to your favorite waffle recipe, but why not take it over the top and whisk in a little pure pumpkin? The results are tender on the inside but still crisp on the outside. The best part is they freeze beautifully. Just pop them in a resealable plastic bag and stick them in the freezer. When you get a pumpkin-spice hankering, drop one in the toaster. Top with a drizzle of maple syrup or smear with peanut butter for a grab-n-go breakfast.
