yield: 4

 

total time: 20 MINUTES

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 TB white vinegar
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 TB sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 TB melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • green food coloring

Directions:

Pre-heat a griddle to 300°.
In a small bowl combine milk and vinegar. Set aside and let sit for a few minutes.
In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Whisk butter, egg and vanilla into the milk. Add food coloring, and stir until you reach the desired color.
Combine with flour mixture and stir until smooth.
Use a 1/4 cup to pour batter onto a greased griddle. Let cook on one side until bubbles begin to pop, then flip to the other side. Cook just until golden brown.

Every once in awhile I’ll throw some lucky charms in the batter to really take these Saint Patrick’s Day pancakes over the top. It’s also fun to top them with whipped cream and the marshmallows too. Hello sugar!

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). I used non-stick cookie sheet , if you are using baking sheet line with parchment paper. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Make sure not to incorporate too air by beating to long. Beat in egg, food coloring and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips.
  3. Roll dough into balls about one inch in diameter and flatten slightly to create round discs, and place onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  4. Bake about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden around the edges


You can also scoop some ice cream between two cookies to make a dessert sandwich!
