I like my pancakes thin with a crispy edge. Anyone have tips on making them like that?

For thinner pancakes and crispy edges, make the batter a little thinner. Experiment until they are as you like them. Add extra liquid to the batter between each pancake. Be sure to keep track of the extra liquid that you added so that the recipe can be reliably repeated.

I cut back on the flour amount to thin the batter or optionally add a bit more liquid, and fry them in a cast iron skillet with much more oil than most recipes or diets would recommend. I call them 'Flatjacks' Good Luck.
