Thankfully, Melissa was lucky enough to win a waffle maker from #MKEfoodies.
The day we received the waffle maker, Melissa was struck with dinner inspiration. She made waffles based on a recipe from Cook's Country and added some toasted chopped pecans to the batter. On top, we drizzled some cinnamon-butter glaze and some more toasted chopped pecans.
The sweet, rich cinnamon glaze was a great contrast to the smokiness and crunchiness of the pecans. And the waffle maker performed well, producing fluffy waffles.
1/4 cup or 1/2 stick of softened unsalted butter
2 to 3 cups of powdered sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1. Whisk ingredients together in a bowl. We added salt at the end because we used unsalted butter. Add powdered sugar and cinnamon to taste.
