Ingredients:

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, divded
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed

For the cinnamon sugar

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For the cream cheese glaze

  • 1/4 cup whipped cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat a waffle iron to medium-high heat. Lightly brush the top and bottom of the waffle iron with 2 tablespoons melted butter.
  2. To make the cinnamon sugar, combine sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
  3. To make the cream cheese glaze, combine cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar, milk and vanilla in a small bowl until smooth; set aside.
