To Serve:
Transfer both the filling and icing to squirt bottles. Cut the tips of each bottle to approximately ¼ inch diameter. Prepare your favorite pancake recipe. Pour your desired amount of batter (depending on how large you like your pancakes) onto a hot skillet. Let pancake cook for approximately 1 minute and then, starting at the center, squeeze filling into pancake spiraling from the center to the outer edge. Flip once set.
Once you’ve completed your pancakes, top with one scoop of cinnamon butter. Then add the icing in a zig-zag pattern or any pattern you wish! Add toasted or candied pecans if desired.
