These Christmas Tree Stack Pancakes from Betty Crocker would be such a perfect treat for Christmas breakfast. The recipe suggests making one tree at a time, which is eight graduated pancakes. Powdered sugar, drizzled icing, and sprinkles would all work great for decorating them!
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
1. In large bowl, stir all Pancakes ingredients until well blended. Heat nonstick griddle to 375°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).
2. 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 quick 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.
3. 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.
