Apple Cider Waffles

They just don't make apple cider in small pint size containers.  When you buy a half gallon, you need to find all kinds of delicious ways to use it.  This is my second attempt at making waffles.  Last weeks were a bust.  So it was back into the kitchen to try again and this time with success.  The cinnamon syrup blended perfectly with these apple waffles.
