Loved these waffles. Have to agree with Pets"R"us that the pecans really are not that necessary. This made 5 4X4 in my machine. Probably will cut recipe in half when there is just the two of us for breakfast. thank you for posting.

These waffles were excellent! Crispy and beautiful. I used the pecans but am sure they will be just as good if you were to leave them out! The recipe made six 4x4 inch waffles in my machine.
