Pumpkin Sugar Crunch Waffles
With caramelized edges and bursts of crunchy sugar, these crisp and slightly chewy waffles are inspired by Belgian Liège waffles, which are typically made from brioche dough that's studded with coarse Belgian pearl sugar. In this recipe, however, the batter is looser, requires no mixer, and is sweetened with smaller granules of Swedish pearl sugar for moments of sweetness in every bite. While the resulting waffles are not quite as dramatically crispy or sugared as their Belgian role models, they’re still decidedly more pastry than breakfast. That said, we don’t think anyone will complain if you serve them with whipped cream on a holiday morning (or anytime, really)!
