Pumpkin Pie Pancakes with Maple Cream Cheese Syrup

Shan and I are pretty excited about fall. For one, that means cooler weather and that sure makes a difference when you’re standing by our ol’ wood stove Bertha. Fall also means pumpkins. Now I sure ain’t the type to cut them up into shapes or carvings, but I do like to eat them especially in the pie form.
Well Shan came up with these Pumpkin Pie Pancakes with some leftover pumpkin and it’s the best of both worlds: dessert and breakfast.Hope y’all have a safe fall! And holler when you get those pancakes fixed!
