All the mouthwatering recipes in our series “The Main Ingredient” have one thing in common: They all contain cookies. 

Frosted Pancake Sandwich

Anyone who’s crazy for sugar knows that chocolate chip pancakes don’t quite make the cut on the sweetness scale. They tend to taste a bit dry and bland, and you barely notice the chips inside. If you’re nodding your head in agreement, then we have just what you need to cure your boring-flapjack-induced coma: frosted pancake sandwiches. Best of all, you can make them in as few as three easy steps, so you can get your morning sugar rush even earlier.

Plain Pancakes

Buy a box of your favorite pancake mix, or whip up some fluffy flapjacks from scratch if that’s what your heart desires. Separate the finished batch of pancakes into stacks of two.

Pancakes With Vanilla Buttercream Frosting and Chocolate Chips

For each stack, lay one of the pancakes on a plate and pipe a layer of buttercream frosting on top of it. You can add as much or as little as you like, and you can use whatever icing flavor strikes your fancy. (We recommend Cheryl’s fudge, vanilla, cinnamon and caramel frosting.)

Place another plain, unfrosted pancake on top of the layer of icing. Add a dollop of whipped cream (or more frosting) to the top pancake and sprinkle it with your favorite sweet or savory garnish. We paired vanilla frosting with chocolate chips to create a cookies-and-cream sandwich, but you can use powdered sugar, sprinkles, walnuts, almonds, coconut, or fruit to make your own flavorful concoction.

Voila! You’re ready to serve the perfect breakfast-slash-dessert medley that will gratify any sweet tooth at the crack of dawn…and the whole day through.
