STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM PANCAKES WITH FRESH STRAWBERRY TOPPING

Our family went strawberry picking yesterday so I've been googling looking for yummy recipes to make.  This morning I threw some fresh cut up strawberries in some pancakes and found this AMAZING strawberry syrup recipe online.  It is so delicious and easy, a definitely must try!!!

Pancakes
2 cups pancake mix
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup diced strawberries (fresh or frozen-thawed)
4 oz cream cheese

Fresh Strawberry Syrup
3 cups diced strawberries
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix all ingredients for strawberry syrup in a saucepan, bring to a boil, lower heat to a simmer and simmer for 15 minutes.

While syrup is cooking, mix pancake mix, milk and 1 cup of diced strawberries together in a bowl.  Make pancakes - I use a 1/2 cup scoop and it makes about a dozen or more smaller pancakes.

When pancakes are done heat cream cheese in microwave for about 20 seconds to soften to make it easier to spread.  Spread a layer of cream cheese on each pancake.  

When syrup is done remove from heat and as it cools it'll thicken.  Put a spoonful of syrup on top of cream cheese and layer however many pancakes you want!
