Quick & Easy Breakfast Cookies

This was one of those “why not” moments I had awhile ago.  The three of us tend to have pancakes pretty regularly, but we always have leftover batter.  Before, I would end up making up the batter and/or throwing it away because no one liked cold or reheated pancakes.  Then I got the idea of adding jam to the leftover batter and making silver dollar pancakes.  Ian loves these.  They are small enough to be great snacks or I can give him a couple at time for lunch.  The best part is, I don’t have to heat them up.  Ian loves them straight out of the ziploc bag.   During one weekend I made these, I noticed he kept going into the kitchen and helping himself to the “cake cakes”.  That is what he calls them – either cake cakes or cookies.

The one thing you have to watch is the batter thickness.  If you like thick pancakes, then this recipe will work beautifully for you; however, if you like thin pancakes, you’ll probably need to add more Bisquick.  Once you add the jam, it will thin the batter, which works for the cookies since you want them thin instead of thick.  I’ve tried cherry, strawberry and raspberry jams with this recipe and Ian has loved them all.  I generally use whatever I have in the fridge, so there really is no limitations on flavors.

Another variation on this recipe is to use fruit instead of jam.  I have done that in the past as well.  Just like with the Fruit Pancakes, once you’re done with dinner, simple make the silver dollar pancakes, maybe adding a little more fruit depending on how much you have in the batter to begin with, and viola.

2 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup egg product or 2 eggs
3/4 to 1 cup milk
2 heaping tbsp of jelly or jam


  1. Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat or electric griddle to 375°F; grease with cooking spray, vegetable oil or shortening. (Surface is ready when a few drops of water sprinkled on it dance and disappear.)
  2. Stir all ingredients until blended. Pour by spoonful onto hot griddle.
  3. Cook until edges are dry. Turn; cook until golden.
