Classic Crispy Waffles

Classic Crispy Waffles
It's taken me quite a bit of recipe testing to come up with a recipe for waffles that I think is practically perfect.  Over the years, I've served my husband far too many soft, limp waffles that were essentially just waffle-shaped pancakes, and he ate them without complaint, but I knew they were all wrong.  Now, I love a stack of light, fluffy pancakes drenched in pure maple syrup, but not when what I want is a waffle that's golden and crisp on the outside and fluffy inside..
