They are sweet and delicious and look exactly like pancakes.

Pancake COOKIES….

place 1-2 tablespoons of batter on skillet over medium heat, cook until golden on both sides and center is cooked.  About 2 minutes per side.



Pancake Cookies made in a skillet
  • ½ cup butter melted and cooled
  • 1¼ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1¾ cups flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons water
  1. beat butter and sugar
  2. add in eggs and vanilla
  3. mix in flour and baking powder
  4. stir in water until the batter is smooth and creamy
  5. place 1-2 tablespoons of batter on heated skillet on medium heat
  6. cook until both sides are golden and center of cookies is fully cooked
I lightly oil the pan with a silicone brush. Even no stick pans need to be lightly oiled for the first batch, but I do not find that I need to re oil the pan each time after that.

These will fool anyone into thinking they are pancakes, and they taste great drizzled with maple syrup too.

    When I first saw the image I though: “Did Diane just make crescentine?” Then I saw they were pancake cookies :) I’m not a fan of pancakes but my twin loves them so I definitely have to make these for her. Thank you!

      they taste like sugar cookie and the texture is a little crunchy outside and soft inside…. like cookies :) you just don’t need an oven to make them

    I made these cookies today, they are so very sweet and I would cut the sugar by quite a bit for my taste. I found that the recipe on this page was confusing in the amount of flour, then when I pinned it to Pinterest, it was still another version. I would like a correct copy to try again, in order to be fair in my evaluation of it. The novelty is enough for me to try it, and the fact you can have a cookie and not heat up the house in the summertime.

      Hello, I double checked the recipe and no it’s not incorrect. The amount of sugar is 1 1/4 cups. If you prefer them less sweet by all means reduce the sugar. I do use salted butter, so that can account for some difference if you use unsalted butter (sweet cream butter). The cookies will taste like sugar cookies. Alternatively you could reduce the sugar and/or add 1/4 teaspoon salt if desired. I’m not sure what you saw on Pinterest. I checked where I pinned my post and the ingredient list is the same as on my site, I do not have any control over what others do when they pin posts to Pinterest as they can edit the information. If you prefer your baked goods not on the sweet side I would try 3/4 cup sugar in the batter, make one cookie and see if that is enough sugar for you and add more sugar then make another cookie until you have the result you are looking for. Hope that was helpful. I appreciate your feedback.

    Cant wait to make these! I wonder what would happen if you tried to use a package of blueberry muffin mix and tried this?

    I had a question about the amount of flour. Is it truly 1 and 13/4 cup of flour or 1 and 3/4 cup flour.

    I tend to be a bit literal.

    Thanks! I can’t wait to try them.

      sorry about the typo, it’s 1 and 3/4 cups of flour. I adjusted the recipe to the correct proportions.
