Strawberry Shortcake Mini Stacks

There’s nothing better than a short stack of mini Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancakes. This recipe goes one step further and includes cream cheese and strawberry filling spread between each layer.


Prep time: 5 minutes
Total time: 10 minutes
Servings: 8 stacks 



3 cup Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix
2 cups water


4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup whipping cream, whipped to stiff peaks
1 1/2 cup strawberries, sliced


Prepare 3 cups pancake mix as directed.

Pour 1/8 cup batter per pancake onto a griddle. Note: A small cookie scoop is great for creating a silver dollar pancake, approximately 2" in diameter. 

Cook at least 24 pancakes. Cook pancakes approximately 45 seconds to 1 minute per side, turning only once. Set aside.

Whip together cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Fold in whipped cream. 

Assemble by starting with 1 pancake then pipe or spread a tablespoon of filling on top of the pancake, top with a few slices of strawberry, then another pancake. Repeat to create another layer and create a stack.
