Ingredients

  • Your favorite pancake mix (homemade or store-bought)
  • Softened butter
  • Chocolate chips (optional)

Method

  1. Prepare your pancakes according to the box or to the recipe you have.
  2. Heat your skillet on medium heat
  3. Add 1/2 tbs of butter and melt completely
  4. While butter is melting, use cookie spray to coat the cookie cutter so no pancake mix sticks
  5. Place your cookie cutter on the skillet
  6. Spoon the pancake mix into the cookie cutter filling it about 1/8 inch thick
  7. If using chocolate chips sprinkle a few on top of the pancake mix while in the cookie cutter
  8. Let the pancake mix cookie for about a minute (you’ll see the sides just start to form, but it won’t be ready to flip yet)
  9. Using your tweezers or tongs, gently lift the cookie cutter off of the skillet; set aside
  10. Let the pancake mix form bubbles in the center and then flip
  11. Cook on the other side for approximately 90 seconds
  12. Move to plate. Serve with syrup, whipped cream, or chocolate
  13. Repeat for however many pancakes you need to make

How easy was that?!
