Cookie Cutter Pancakes

Saturday, December 8, 2018
Cookie Cutter Pancakes are always the perfect treats for all your little Elves and Santa to enjoy!


The young at heart also gets a big kick out of this creative way to serve pancakes and cut out toast for the Holiday Season.


These are great for any occasion like birthday, anniversaries or anything special for breakfast, fun, simple and nothing says I love you more than homemade foods!


The kids love coming up with different shapes from animals to holiday shapes and can even use any squeeze bottle and squeeze the shapes you like.


This is so easy, you don't have to be an artist to make Character shaped pancakes like Micky Mouse or Minnie you just need to decorate the 3 round shapes you make.


Just take a look at the photos.


I used a dollar tree squeeze bottle for ketchup to make the ears and head then just decorated with dried fruits and chocolate chips.


Cutout foods are really personalized, you can find some really cute idea to make the best little treats and keep any day special!


Check out my creative ideas, and remember, they have to be a metal, don't use plastic cookie cutters they will melt!

Fun for Kids and Adults



I'm not sure what I love more, making these fun treats or eating them!



But the look on my grandchildren's faces is going to be the best part of the day! They just love the shapes and these are so easy to do.

Tips and Ideas


  • Just make sure you are using a metal cookie cutter sprayed with a light film of cooking oil.
  • They will easily slip out of the cutter when you lift it off to flip your delicious creations.
  • Any time of the year you can make these special treats.
  • I have a large collection of metal cookie cutters, so I usually can make animal shapes, characters and much more to make the kids smile all year long.
  • Top with sprinkles or mini chips, chopped cherries, chopped candy bars, fresh fruits, whipped cream or anything you like on pancakes
  • Use a pancake mix they work fine when you're in a hurry and add some orange zest or lemon to it to taste homemade!













Fun Times Of The Year



During the holiday, it's always a must make and they ask for them every year in case I forget.



One of the best parts about cooking is creative and you can just use your imagination to make whatever they like.



Another way to do this is to put the pancake batter in a squeezable condiment bottle.



You can actually squirt the batter on an oiled coated grill pan to make whatever you like if you have an artistic talent.


Have some fun and enjoy eating these creative pancakes.

The Joys of Christmas




The perfect festive treat for little ones, young at heart and guests to celebrate the holiday.


Of course, you can use this idea all year long using any kinds of cookie cutters.


If you are really super creative you can use a condiment container filled with batter and make characters by drawing whatever you like on the pan.


I have made easy to draw characters like a snowman, bears get creative!


Here is our breakfast for Christmas morning!

You can also cut your toast out into shapes for the poached egg idea.


Or just cut soft bread out and make an egg sandwich and not toasted.


Get creative using the cookie cutters, these pancakes are just one of many reasons to use them.

Time



I realize working mom's don't have that time to make homemade pancakes, no problem.


There are many mixes out there you can buy and they all work fine.


You can add sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, or anything else on top for a sweet treat.


Not so healthy, but hey, it's only for special times, and making memories.


Try starting some new traditions that last a lifetime in anyone's mind, kids are only little once and for such a short time!





Micky mouse shaped pancakes

Easy to do Micky Mouse



Just add to any squirt bottle that has a large round tip with a hole, make sure you cut the hole bigger if it's small or the batter lumps will get stuck.


Squeeze out on the hot butter griddle pan, two small and one large circle that connects.




this is a squeeze mustard plastic yellow container



Note:



If you find it to continue to clog with large lumps even after you have cut the tip-off on the squeeze bottle, use a gravy ladle instead to make the circle.


The homemade batter is supposed to have lumps, however, to make a smoother batter use store-bought pancake mixes.


Place on a plate to cool and decorate.


We used chocolate chips and craisins for the mouth.


For Minnie mouse just make a smaller version.

Thrilled Beyond Words



As you can see Talia was so excited she just couldn't wait to eat her favorite Character breakfast.


Certainly, one of the best memories she remembers with grandma for years to come.


There is nothing like making memories in the kitchen.


I am so happy to put a big smile on her face and she gobbled up these pancakes faster than a lightning strike!


Cookie cutters or free-flowing batter to make pancakes will brighten any child or young at hearts, day for sure.
