The title alone makes these GREAT. It was a year ago I was introduced to Williams-Sonoma catalog. It is full of delicious recipes, so it was time to whip out one of their recipes but put my little spin to it. There were no issues with the recipe, since I put my own spin to it. They may be a little more work into making them than your usual waffle recipe, but are totally worth it. Guys this is a must to surprise that special woman in your life!
Cinnamon Waffles with Caramelized Pears
Yield: 12 4-inch square waffles
For the caramelized Pears:
3 tbsp. unsalted butter
6 Djourn pears, peeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch slices
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla extract
For the waffles:
3 eggs, separated
1 3/4 cups buttermilk
8 tbsp. melted butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. salt
whipped cream, for serving
To make the caramelized pears, in a skillet over medium-high heat, melt 3 tablespoons butter. Add the pear slices, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Mix until apples are evenly coated. Cook about 18 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove skillet from heat and stir in vanilla. Set aside.
To make the waffles, in a large bowl whisk together the egg yolks, buttermilk, melted butter, and vanilla. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Whisk the flour mixture into the yolk mixture until smooth. In another clean bowl, beat the egg whites on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form, about 1 minute. Gently fold 1 cup egg whites into batter; carefully fold in remaining egg whites.
Preheat waffle maker on medium-high. Pour 1/3 cup batter into each well of waffle maker; close the lid. Cook 5-6 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve waffles with caramelized pears and whipped cream.
