Liege Pumpkin waffles with pearl sugar. Topped with spiced whipped cream and maple syrup and a scoop of Speculoos or Biscoff spread.
Add yeast to the lukewarm milk. Stir to dissolve the yeast then set aside. In a large mixing bowl combine flour, salt, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves. Add softened butter and mix until the mixture is a sandy consistency. Add eggs, pumpkin, milk mixture and vanilla. Mix until the dough is smooth and begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl. Cover and let rise for 45 minutes. Mix in pearl sugar and divide the dough into 1/2 cup scoops. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silicone mat. Cover while heating waffle iron. Once the waffle iron has heated place one scoop of the dough in the center of the iron. Cook for about 3 minutes depending on your waffle iron. Carefully remove waffle once the sugar melts it is extremely hot and can burn your fingers. Carefully lift waffle out with the aid of two forks. Top with maple whipped cream and a scoop of speculoos.
