Strawberry Butter (recipe follows)
2 cups buttermilk baking mix
1 cup milk
1/2 cup plain yogurt
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 1/2 cups fresh or thawed frozen strawberries
Prepare Strawberry Butter; set aside.
Preheat electric skillet or griddle to 375 degrees F.
Combine baking mix, milk, eggs and yogurt in medium bowl; mix well. Spoon scant 1/2 cup batter into skillet. With back of spoon, gently spread batter into 4-inch circle. Spoon about 2 tablespoons batter onto top edge of circle for head. Using back of spoon, spread batter from head to form bunny ears. Cook until bubbles on surface begin to pop and top of pancake appears dry; turn pancake over. Cook until done, 1 to 2 minutes. Decorate with candies to resemble bunny face.
Repeat with remaining batter. Serve warm with Strawberry Butter.
