My mom and I had fun creating this recipe together. My daughter Jennifer, could eat these sandwiches every day. It's a good thing the recipe makes a big batch! - Ona Allen, Huber Heights, Ohio

"Great recipe. Only a few things I would change. Maybe add a bit of clove and pumpkin pie spice for more flavor. We also added a bit more pumpkin cuz we love it!! We used whip cream to top them instead of syrup, amazing! We added a few chocolate chips to a few of them just to see what they would taste like. They were the best of the batch! Definitely would recommend this recipe to others!!"

"As many other reviewers commented, these turned out gummy, almost pasty tasting. In addition to the texture, the flavor was lacking something, perhaps more sweetness or spice. I added toasted walnuts to our batch but will not make these again. My pancake loving kids didn't even care for them."
