Pumpkin Waffles with Orange Walnut Butter and Nutmeg Syrup

I made these waffles over the weekend and loved them! I ripped the recipe out of a magazine last November and finally got around to making them. I am glad I did! I loved the pumpkin flavor of the waffles. It was just the right amount of pumpkin. The compound butter was amazingly delicious, too.

The star of the show, in my opinion, was the nutmeg syrup. Oh, my, YUMMY! It was so wintery to me... the perfect way to start December. So bust out your waffle irons and welcome December with this delicious breakfast!
