Pumpkin Pecan Spice Waffles

4 cups flour
2 t. baking soda
1 T. baking powder
1 t. salt
½ c. brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 t. pumpkin pie spice
2 cups pureed pumpkin
1 c. butter, melted
3 c. buttermilk
6 eggs
2 t. vanilla
chopped Pecans

In a large bowl, mix together all dry ingredients. Add pumpkin, butter, buttermilk, eggs and vanilla. Mix, but don’t overbeat.
Spray preheated waffle iron with nonstick butter-flavor spray, sprinkle with pecans, pour batter over, and close the lid. When steam stops rising from the waffle iron, waffles are done. Serve warm with butter, syrup, powdered sugar or cream cheese icing (recipe follows).

Cream Cheese icing:
5 Tbs. butter, softened
3 oz cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
3-4 tsp. milk
Beat the butter and cream cheese together. Add the vanilla and blend till smooth. Gradually add the powdered sugar and mix well. Add the milk a bit at a time until you get it to a spreadable consistency.

This makes a LOT of batter, but the batter can be refrigerated for several days, and the finished waffles freeze nicely.
