Expert Tips

If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, you can use 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon each of ground nutmeg and ground ginger instead.

Serve with hot apple cider and a small platter of sliced pears and Cheddar cheese.

Add flavor and texture to these seasonal pancakes by stirring about 1/2 cup of chopped pecans or walnuts into the batter.
