These flapjacks are so pretty, it’s tempting to just gaze at them. But as good as they are to look at, they’re even better to eat! —Donna Cline, Pensacola, Florida

"Just didn't think this was worth the effort. I cannot taste the graham cracker and the pancakes were very dense. The topping was disgusting with the heat of the pancakes melting it all over the place. I will not be making these again without some major modifications."

"These were just ok. In my opinion, it was a lot more work that they were worth. The graham cracker crumbs added no additional flavor, and I wasn't that impressed with the cheesecake topping although my housemates both loved it."

"These pancakes to my family were just OK. My 4 year old son did not like them at all. My husband & I just were not that impressed. The batter is not very sweet, but I understand that because you have the blueberries, topping & syrup. It is just the the whipped/cream cheese topping wasn't that great. It sounds like it would be, but all together everything was just average. I would not make these again."

"There are not too many recipes I make twice, and this one will miss the cut. Good but too dense. The graham cracker makes it taste like whole wheat, might as well make whole wheat. I tried to make it look like the picture except for a serving size is three pancakes, which is what should be in the picture, and if you like hot pancakes (as most people do) the whipped cream cheese melts and the pancakes slide to the side. It isn't going to looks like that. But, the family ate them all gone."
