Can I start by saying that my life wasn’t complete until these browned butter pumpkin pancakes came along? They’re so freakin’ delicious that I kind of want to write them a lover letter, but that would be weird, so I’ll just whisper sweet nothings to the stack in between nibbles instead. I don’t even care about the side-stares I’ll get from my boyfriend or the questionable remarks spewed by the kids. I love these pancakes (like, will-you-marry-me love them), and I’m prepared to shout it from the rooftops. If you’re into pumpkin desserts, then you need these too. Trust me.
