  • In a small bowl, whisk together maple syrup and confectioners' sugar until smooth. In a small saucepan, heat 6 tablespoons butter over medium, swirling pan occasionally, until golden brown and most of the foam has subsided, 8 to 10 minutes. Immediately pour into maple mixture and whisk until mixture forms a ribbon when you lift the whisk. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside.

  • Heat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions. Lightly coat with cooking spray. Pour 1 1/3 cups batter onto iron and close; cook until waffle is golden and crisp, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack set in a rimmed baking sheet. Repeat with remaining batter.

  • Pour maple glaze onto a dinner plate. Dip one side of each waffle into glaze. To serve, cut each waffle in half and sprinkle with pecans.

Cook's Notes

Make the batter and glaze up to 2 hours ahead; cover and keep at room temperature.Brown butter is butter that has been heated until light brown in color and nutty in flavor and aroma. Once the butter turns brown, use it immediately or transfer it to a bowl to keep it from overcooking.
