Pecan Waffles

I've tried for years to duplicate a delicious waffle I ate at a restaurant chain here in the South. This is the closest I've come, and they're crisp and nutty. Butter and maple syrup are my family's favorite toppings. Why not serve them for your holiday brunch? -Susan Jansen, Smyrna, Georgia
