They shared two fall recipes for us -- pumpkin spice waffles and maple spiced apples.


4 large eggs, separated

1 pint buttermilk, shaken vigorously

1 cup canned solid-pack pumpkin

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/3 cup packed light brown sugar

2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

cooking spray

Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions.

Beat egg whites in a glass or metal bowl until soft peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak.

Beat egg yolks, buttermilk, pumpkin, and butter together with a whisk in a large bowl until smooth; add flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, ginger, salt, and cloves. Stir the mixture with the whisk just until you have a smooth batter.

Fold the egg whites into the batter just until combined.

Prepare cooking surfaces of your waffle iron with cooking spray. Ladle about 2/3 cup batter into the prepared iron and cook until browned, 4 to 5 minutes.

Serve with Maple Spiced Apples (recipe follows)


4 apples, peeled and sliced

2 Tbs unsalted butter

1 tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp ground ginger

¼ tsp ground cloves

1 cup pure maple syrup

Heat the butter in a skillet. When the butter has melted add in the apples and saute for 3-4 minutes. Add the spices and saute for another minute or so. Add the maple syrup and bring to a simmer and cook for 1-2 minutes.

Serve hot over waffles or pancakes.
