A heavenly way to start the day! Serve this to your Loved one in Bed! That is if their nose doesn't bring them into the kitchen first!Use the syrup on waffles or even a pork roast!

These pancakes are heavenly, and it's all thanks to the syrup! As soon as I smelled the aroma of the amaretto wafting through the kitchen, I knew I was in for a treat. I made the pancakes using "soy buttermilk" and used McIntosh apples in the syrup because I had a lot on hand. My mom and I had this for dinner tonight, and we both loved it. We felt like we were in a trendy restaurant. I can't wait to try the syrup on other things as well. Thanks for another keeper, Rita!
