Cookie Cutter Pancakes

IMG_7332This is just a fun way to make your pancakes on Christmas morning! It takes a little extra time but the kids love it,  and let’s be honest, so do the adults! Not only are they fun shapes but they are easy to grab, dip and eat. I also have a great PANCAKE BATTER recipe for you to try this out with as well!

So you start out with spraying your METAL cookie cutters with cooking spray and putting them right on the hot skillet. Make sure your batter is pretty thin, that way it will spread easily in the cookie cutter.

When it’s bubbly and ready to flip, turn the whole cookie cutter over (make sure you have a glove or use a glove or tongs to flip it so you don’t burn your hands…speaking from experience here)!



Then gently press the pancake down with a butter knife, keeping it close to the edges so you don’t break the pancake into bits (again, speaking from experience).IMG_7339

Remove the cookie cutter and let it finish cooking right on the griddle. Remove  like a normal pancake! They look so cute!!!

If you are like me you either eat all the scraps anyway, or your dog eats them for you. We don’t waste much in our house!!!
