You can make regular pancakes with the batter as well. Drizzle with maple, icing or top with some cream cheese frosting or whipped coconut cream and fruits! Make a whole baked cake with this recipe.

How to make soft cookie cutter pancakes
- Cookie cuter pancakes are cooked a bit differently than regular pancakes. Cook them on lower heat, don’t make them too thick, cook covered, cook for longer time.
- Higher heat tends to burn the bottoms before the batter on top has started to cook.
- Too thick pancakes wont cook in the middle. The batter rises a lot, so pour less to be on the safe side in the cookie cutter.
- I use large cookie cutters, (3.5 to 4.5 inch range works best) for these pancakes. The cutters get hot, so use the spatula to handle. After a try or 2, you will be able to figure out the amount of batter that works best to keep it easy and the best way to flip them.
