Valentine Pancakes

Instead of decorating valentine cookies this year (as you can see from the blog, we had lots of treats), we decorated our pancakes.

Basic pancake batter
red food coloring
heart shaped cookie cutters
strawberry, raspberry, or cherry yogurt (something pink)

First we take a basic pancake batter, if you don't have a recipe, let me know and I will post it, I'm just guessing most people have one.  Add about 4 drops of red food coloring and now you have pink pancakes.  I will warn you though, once you cook them and they brown up, it's hard to see the pinkness.

After making your pancakes, cut out hear shapes.  Then you can add your toppings (yogurt and sprinkles), or you could use actual frosting, we just happen to be big yogurt fans.  For some it might seem odd to put yogurt on your pancakes, but you should try it, it's really good!
