Galletica Maria Pancakes

Kids wanted pancakes. I wanted to try something new from The Project.  Unfortunately, I only have ham pancakes and cheese pancakes left to try and the kids didn't wake up on the adventurous tasting side of the bed this morning.

Going for an Original La Cocina recipe, inspired by a pack of GOYA Maria Cookies sitting in my pantry.  Let's call them Galletica Maria Pancakes.

Pancakes with crushed Galletica Marias in the batter? Don't mind if I do.

The result? A nice hint of the cookie taste in each pancake. I should have hand-crushed the cookies and added them to the batter at the end, in order to leave some texture in the finished product.

Try that - and let me know how you like it. Enjoy!
