When I really want to impress folks, I serve these waffles. They're beautiful with a fresh sprig of mint atop the sweet butter. It was my most requested recipe when I owned a bed and breakfast. —Brenda Ryan, Marshall, Missouri

"My husband and I really enjoyed these waffles. They didn't get really toasty but my husband likes them soft anyway. The cranberry maple butter was wonderful! Will be making these again. I did add a little nutmeg for some Christmas flavor but they would have been good without it to I think."

"Use 3/4 cup white flour and 1/2 cup wheat flour for sturdier waffles. Add cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and ground ginger to the dry ingredients for a little more flavor. Then, they are perfect!"

"I followed the directions to the letter and the batter was not sturdy enough for a waffle iron. They stuck no matter how much oil on the iron or time baked. The flavor of the bits I pulled off the iron was fine, but they ended up being waffles crumbs. I will not make this again."

"This recipe is definitely a keeper! I didn't add spices like some other reviewers did, so I enjoyed being able to taste the pecans and cranberries and maple. I agree that the batter was too runny. I thought maybe it was because I had used canned pumpkin that was frozen and then thawed, and it was a little watery. No problem though. I whisked into the batter about a cup more of flour and they turned out just fine. I think they're soft instead of crispy because they're lower in fat than other waffle recipes - not necessarily a bad thing. I wasn't sure how many waffles equal 4 servings, but I got 7 waffles from one batch. I think the maple cranberry butter was awesome! A single batch of that would be plenty for a double batch of the waffles. My son got a kick out of the waffles being served with a round scoop of the flavored butter on the center and a drizzle of syrup , "just like they do in the restaurants"."

"These waffles were great, I used some fresh nutmeg and a pinch of ginger that gave them a wonderful spice."

"I agreed with some of the other reviews, that the waffles themselves were rather bland. I even added 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice, and I still thought it needed more spice to it. Also, don't expect these waffles to be crispy waffles, like a typical waffle. Mine were rather soft. The maple cranberry butter was very good. I really enjoyed the tartness of the cranberries with the waffle, because it gave more flavor to the waffle. I enjoyed the butter and the waffle together, but for me, I would've liked the waffle to have been crispier and that the waffle had more flavor."

"yes it was a little bland so I threw in some cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice and it livened right up! I went ahead and cooked them extra long after reading the reviews and mine turned our fine. I wanna try the berry butter next time to go along with them!! I also used fresh cooked pumpkin ) much healthier than canned... thank you!"

"I tried the recipe but I changed the canned pumpkin to the real ones which I boiled. Taste great and nutritious I suppose!

"Excellent recipe!!! I added 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice and deleted the nuts (allergies) I cooked them until the waffle iron stopped steaming and they came out perfect. I would definitely put this in our regular family recipes. It was quick and EASY!!!"
