Strawberry Cheesecake Pancakes

I have been wanting to try this for a while, so today I had a guest that stays with us often and I asked her if she would not mind being a Guinee pig for a new recipe. She graciously said of coarse, so today I bring you three of many of my favorite ingredients. I used most store bought ingredients for this recipe, however you could make your own as well. I always find it gratifying when I can look in the pantry and throw something together quickly if I need to. This is one of those recipes.

Strawberry Cheesecake Pancakes- Serves 3STRAW CHEEESECAKE PANCAKES

Pancake mix ( I used 2 cups of mix with 1 1/4 C water),  8″ frozen cheesecake(use half) and  strawberry jam, whipped Cream (optional)

Preheat your frying pan and butter or spray so your pancakes don’t stick.

Mix up your pancake mix about 15 minutes ahead of time if you can. Pancakes always turn out better when you can let the batter sit for awhile. Cut half of the frozen cheesecake into bite size pieces and stir into the pancake batter just before you add to the frying pan.

Fry your pancakes as you normally would. As your pancakes are cooking, put your jar of strawberry jam in the microwave and heat 30- 60 seconds and bubbly and sticky.

Pull your pancakes off the frying pan when done, pat them with butter and pour the strawberry jam between the layers of pancakes. Top with Whipped Cream if you desire.
