During the holidays, we usually have a late or heavy breakfast and an inbetween lunch and suppertime meal. So we may have pancakes that morning. I was thinking either a smiley face with m and ms/reeses pieces or maybe 3 small attached to each other snowmen and maybe raisins for the features. I'd really like a berry smile with chocolate chip eyes on mine. What would be your ideas?

Go buy cookie cutters of christmas theme...tree, star, stocking, snowman. Then lightly grease the cutter, place it on your skillet and pour the pancake mix into the cookie cutter...once set, pull the cookie cutter up, gently and then when ready. flip it! to add festivity...place some sprinkles or red hots or chocolate chips etc in the cookie cutter before you pour the mix in. Then when flipped..those are 'visable' and make for a cute pancake. Also...sprinkle with powder sugar, sugar sprinkles etc. I did this for my kids when they were little and they loved it. Then I just poured the batter in the pan, it wasn't till recently with my grand kids that I learned to use the cookie cutters. Just make sure you grease (with like PAM) the cutter or the batter won't let it pull off. Another thing...color your batter with food coloring before you pour. I also did this with oatmeal and cream of wheat. The kids loved it!

That's great, but what would be a special or holiday pancake for you? Remember mylot rules, 3 sentences or questions or something in order to get much money to get paid and to get pluses.

Umm christmas pancake? For me, it would be like a star shaped pancake, a chocolate flavored or a plain flavored one. then one side of the plate will be like for a whip cream, and a chocolate syrup to be the complementary mix, or getting MnM's on each side of the star. :)

I love chocolate and the m-n-ms would look like Christmas balls. A star and everything. I'd have to have real whip cream. Sounds terrific! Great idea. Thanks and take care.

Those sound yummy. I do not do too much with making characters in pancakes, but I have had them rolled and stuffed with vanilla custard and drizzled with chocolate syrup.i had that in a restaurant. I love pancakes. I also think of two sunny side up eggs for eyes, a small muffin nose and a bacon strip smile.Berries for anything are wonderful. How about heart shaped pancakes or waffles with berries on top.

Maybe strawberries or raspberries for a happy face or a wreath.Never had pancakes with custard or chocolate syrup.Mostly with butter and syrup, or jam or honey. Sounds like quite the desert. Thanks and take care.
