Buttermilk Pancake Recipe

I have to give all credit for this recipe to D.J.  He has perfected pancakes.  This is his recipe for buttermilk pancakes.

To make them Christmassy, I added red and green food coloring, and poured the batter into squirt bottles.  From there, I placed Christmas shaped cookie cutters on my griddle, and squirted the pancake batter into the cookie cutter.  Once it was set on one side, the cookie cutter was easy to remove with a pair of tongs, and flipped perfectly.

Anthony loved them!  It was so much fun, and I got to be creative!  I made them as a test run last week just to make sure it would work with the food coloring and shapes like I thought it would in my head, and it did! Yay!
