Fluffy Pancakes
Excellent texture in this cakes! I especially like the fact that the batter is "thick" b/c our family is a diverse family - hubs likes blueberry, son likes chips or plain, and i am purely a plain girl at heart. so i can pour the batter and sprinkle the "add-ins" to as many pancakes as needed. I do admire the chef - frankly, I can't imagine anyone being happy with just 1/4 of this recipe so think about doubling if you have hungry guys! Of course, I did add a tad of vanilla as always (I can't make anything without it - which makes it tough to get the Buffalo wings spicy LOL). I would suggest you DON'T leave the butter out - it is not so much a flavor additive as it does change the texture a bit.

Nut Rolls
This is a great recipe for nutrolls. I used a different nut filling (cinnamon doesn't do anything for me in nut rolls) and made 1/2 of the rolls with poppy filling. The only change I made to the recipe was I added an extra 1/2 cup of sour cream (not intentionally, I got carried away and put too much in talking while I was making the dough) and I did let them raise for 90 minutes before sliding into the oven. I would note that this makes 6 med rolls - I can't imagine making 7 out of this unless you really like small ones. I think this is one of the nicest doughs I have ever worked with - mixed nicely, rolled easily. just don't roll too thin. this is a keeper!!

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread
These are melt in the mouth, yes. But they are not shortbread. Shortbread should have a supremely buttery taste - that taste was lost in the dough here. i salvaged them by flavoring the glaze a little but if you are looking for a quick shortbread, this is not it.
