In a mixing bowl, add in the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, salt, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and clove. Stir to combine.
Separate the egg yolks and whites.
Beat the egg whites on high until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
Add the buttermilk, egg yolks, melted butter, vanilla bean paste and pumpkin into the dry ingredients. Mix with the hand mixer until incorporated.
Fold in the stiff egg whites. The mixture will be slighly lumpy.
Scoop about 3/4 to 1 cup of the batter into the waffle maker. I quickly spread my batter to the edges of the waffle maker before shutting it.
Let the waffles cook until done. Mine took about 5 minutes to crisp up.
I layed my waffles out on a piece of wax paper and did not stack them. This was so they didn't get super soft.
Let the waffles cool completely before stacking them and adding the maple buttercream.
In a mixing bowl, add butter and cream cheese. Mix on medium/high until smooth and combined.
Add in the maple extract and powdered sugar. Mix on low until just combined. Turn the mixer to medium/high and beat for another minute until fluffy.
Place in a disposable bag with a coupler.
Place a waffle on a cake stand. Pipe a nice layer of buttercream on the top of the waffle. Add another waffle. Repeat with the remaining waffles. I used 5 waffles all together.
Place in the fridge to chill for about 1 - 2 hours.
Butter Pecan Glaze
In a small saucepan, add in the butter, brown sugar and chopped pecans. Place over medium heat and let butter melt.
Let the sugar melt and come together with the butter. Stir occasionally. It will take about 5 - 7 minutes.
Remove from the heat and add the bourbon. Stir to combine. It will bubble and get frothy.
Pour the hot mixture onto the chilled waffles.
Cut and serve.
