Pancake Biscuits!

This morning was a snow day for me so I thought it'd be a clever idea to figure out what I could bake with the stuff I had in my kitchen. After some google searching and yahoo answer reading I pieced together a recipe for Pancake Biscuits. They're very light with a crispy crust. If you want to try to make them the approx. recipe is below:

Jen’s Pancake Biscuits:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

-Cooking spray (I used the butter flavored kind)
-1 cup of Hungry Jack Complete Pancake Mix (I get Extra Light and Fluffy)
-1/4 cup of milk
-1/4 cup of melted salted butter
-1 Tablespoon of water
-1/2 cup of Sargento Mozzarella and Provolone shredded cheese
-1/8 teaspoon of black pepper
-5 turns of the McCormick Italian Herb Seasoning Grinder

Mix the pancake mix with the seasonings and then mix in the cheese. Melt the butter and mix it in with the milk and water. Pour butter-milk-water mixture in with pancake mixture and combine ‘till there’s no dry batter. Spray a non-stick cupcake pan lightly with cooking spray (gives a nice crust) and fill cups about half way. Bake for 7 minutes and you’ll end up with about 8 biscuits. Right after you take them out of the oven, flip them oven in their cup so that the bottom of the biscuit is facing up. Let them cool for a minute then serve plain or with butter.

-Because the pancake mix is sweet, go with it and make a sweet biscuit using cinnamon, clove, etc. as your seasonings instead of the savory seasonings and dust with powdered sugar
-Try adding shredded cheddar cheese instead of the mozzarella and provolone cheese
-Get a corn meal pancake mix, add the cheddar instead and you’ll have easy cornbread
