Spice Apple Pancakes & Football

Apple spice pancakes...can you say, Yummy! I treated my 4 yr old to a morning surprise. While all the other kids were at school she was at home squirting whip cream in her mouth, right from the can and bathing in sprinkles. Yep, she is 4 and did get a little carried away with the sprinkles, but we had fun cooking together. These are a family favorite and there is nothing better than kickin' off fall with some delicious pancakes for breakfast. Recipe follows...

Pancake: 2 Cups pancake mix
               1/2 tsp cinnamon
                1 Egg
               1 1/3 cup milk
                3/4 cup grated apple
mix all the ingredients together and cook up some pancakes

Syrup: 1 cup sugar
            2 Tblsp.  cornstarch
             1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
             2 cups apple cider
             2 tsp. lemon juice
             1/4 cup butter

melt butter in saucepan than add cider, lemon juice, sugar, and spice. Bring to boil and then add cornstarch, continue to boil until thickened. Remember mix your cornstarch in a separate bowl with a little water before adding to the boiling syrup or you will have lumpy syrup.

And a little football action. Nothing says fall like football and apples.
