Sugar-n-Spice Cookies(from pancake mix!)

cindy sandberg


Due to a prize I won in a recent recipe contest, I found myself with a surplus of pancake mix...and we rarely eat pancakes! I decided to try to find other ways to use up the mix. I found a few ideas online for cookies and muffins and such, but none of them really appealed to me, so I decided to experiment. These are the result and, I've gotta say..they are pretty darn good! And so quick and easy, too! I'm excited to try with other varieties of pancake mix such as chocolate chip or apple cinnamon.
