Pumpkin Pancakes

Last year I introduced you to pumpkin biscuits – and I hope you tried them and loved them. This year I bring you pumpkin pancakes from Jenni’s* kitchen. I can tell you with confidence that I would eat ANYTHING that came from Jenni’s kitchen, but pumpkin pancakes? How can you resist?

Can you imagine how happy your husband or your children or your roommate would be to find these on their plate on Halloween morning? Or perhaps you’ll serve them for an easy pre-trick-or-treating dinner?

As for me, I’m plotting a leisurely Sunday morning with a mug of steaming coffee, a stack of these, and a copy of the NY Times. Heaven.
