This delectable stack of sour cream pancakes (yes sour cream, and more on that later) are not only meltingly scrumptious, but they also represent the perfect intersection of my day job as a children’s book editor and my other passion for cooking, shooting pictures, eating, writing about it, and doing the whole thing over again. Because as much as I wish I had come up with this recipe for the best pancakes EVER, that recipe comes from my wonderful friend Ree Drummond. I know her both as a blogging friend AND because I have been lucky enough to be the editor for her adorable picture books.
And those pancakes are where those two worlds delightfully collide, because Ree’s latest picture book, the cuter than cute LITTLE REE, tells not only the story of a little girl who learns to bloom where she is planted…but it also features one of the best pancake recipes ever, and so I felt like I simply had to make them, take their picture and write about them. Oh, and EAT them. And to celebrate all of that, I’m going to give away three copies of both LITTLE REE and Ree’s first cookbook, THE PIONEER WOMAN COOKS, which also includes these pancakes. It’s a perfect storm of deliciousness! Let’s make them!
