These adorable trees are so easy to make just by coloring up a batch of Bisquick®
pancakes! Each tree is stack of different size pancakes with fun, festive decorations
that will delight young and old alike.
4 cups Original Bisquick® mix
2 cups milk
2 teaspoons green paste food color, if desired
Snowy Vanilla Glaze
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons milk
Toppings and Garnishes, If desired
In large bowl, stir all Pancakes ingredients until well blended.
Heat nonstick griddle to 375 degrees F. or 12-inch skillet over medium-high
heat. (To test griddle, sprinkle with a few drops of water. If bubbles jump
around, heat is just right.) Brush with vegetable oil if necessary (or spray
with cooking spray before heating).
Each pancake tree is a stack of 8 different size pancakes. Make only one
tree at a time. Pour 1/4 cupful, 3 level measuring tablespoons, 2 level measuring
tablespoons and 1 level measuring tablespoon batter onto hot griddle. Watching
each pancake carefully, cook until bubbly on top and dry around edges (small
pancakes will get done first). Turn; cook other side until light golden brown
around edges. Keep warm.
To make remaining 4 pancakes to form one tree, pour 2 level measuring teaspoons,
1 level measuring teaspoon, 1/2 level measuring teaspoon and 1/4 level measuring
teaspoon batter onto hot griddle. Watching each pancake carefully, cook until
bubbly on top and dry around edges; pancakes will cook quickly. Turn; cook other
side until light golden brown around edges (they will cook very quickly).
Repeat with remaining batter to make 5 more trees.
To assemble trees, stack on serving plate starting with largest size pancakes
on bottom and stacking each smaller size pancake on top. Drizzle with Snowy
Vanilla Glaze and garnish with sprinkles or candies, or, just sprinkle with
powdered sugar and garnish with sprinkles or candies.
