To make the pancakes cookie base, I cut out simple round circles from the sugar cookie dough.

After the cookies were baked and cooled, it was time to make them really look like pancakes.  I started out with the “butter”.  To make it, I made a mixture of icing sugar and milk and mixed it to a paste consistency.  Then I added in yellow food colouring so it looked a little like butter.

To make the pats of butter for the top of the pancake stack, I rolled out the frosting between two pieces of plastic wrap, and then cut it into little squares with a knife.  I set the whole piece in the fridge for a little while to firm up, and went on to the icing that we would use for the syrup.

For the syrup frosting, I made a really runny icing, thinned out with milk, and maple syrup. To make it darker I added a few teaspoons of cocoa powder, and a little bit of yellow food colouring.   I wanted it to be runny enough to pour off of a spoon easily.

To assemble the pancake sugar cookies, I stacked two cookies together, spooned on some of the syrup icing so that it drizzled off the edge like a real pancake stack, and added a pat of butter to each one.
