We are just starting to get a slight crispness to the air where I live indicating apple-picking season is upon us. Fortunate to live in the area we do, we have several orchards that offer “U-Pick” service. Each September my family and I head to the orchard with our empty paper bag, fill it up with numerous varieties of the best tasting apples that have ever passed my lips, and, as we are encouraged to do, sample away through our ‘chore’. With apples abundant and so devastatingly delicious, we always look for a neat recipe to utilize our surplus, although we all relish an apple as a snack! In my travels I found this recipe to share.

Last autumn I offered up Pumpkin Pancakes and they are still a favorite on cool fall weekend mornings at our house http://chief187.blogspot.com/2010/10/autumn-appetites.html. This Apple Waffles recipe is one to add to the rotation! Served warmed with fresh maple syrup or the kind that comes from the grocery store, some spicy turkey sausage, and a steaming cup of coffee, this breakfast will surely become a favorite!
