Wash fruit and cut into bite-sized pieces and put in a bowl. Reserve nice slice of fruit or whole berry for garnish. Sprinkle bite-sized fruit with sugar or maple syrup (2 tablespoons per serving). Cover with plastic wrap and let it macerate (sit so flavors can blend) for an hour. This will release some of the juice from the fruit to pour over your pancakes. POINTS PLUS: 3
Prepare one serving, according to package directions (1/2 cup Krusteaz mix prepared with water is one serving). Makes enough batter for a waffle or two medium pancakes. POINTS PLUS: 5
When pancakes are cooked spread them with 2 teaspoons of butter (per serving, 2 POINTS PLUS). Put pancake on the plate and top with half of the fruit. Spritz with generous 1/4 cup whipped cream. Top with second pancake, the rest of the fruit, the fruit juice and 1/4 cup more cream and garnish with the reserved fruit slice or berry. TOTAL POINTS PLUS: 12 per serving
