Swedish Pancakes with Orange Butter Sauce

Christmas is seriously not Christmas without this little number gracing our breakfast table. I would give up pretty much any other tradition before I gave up my Swedish pancakes. My mom and 4 sisters and I made these together every single Christmas morning growing up, and that is why they are so special to me. I spent an hour all by my little lonesome making these for my family this year, and although it was not the same without my mom and sisters, it was still worth it. I will force teach my daughters to make these in a few years, to carry on the tradition.

Worth the effort, and worth the calories. These are sooo good. (And have always reminded me of the American girl doll I had when I was little. Kirsten Larson, from Sweden. I'm part Swedish too).

Swedish Pancakes with Orange Butter Sauce 
 Pancakes:
12 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla
4 TB butter
 pinch of salt
1 cup flour

If you thought a dozen eggs sounded like a lot, I always double or triple this recipe. The cold-straight-out-of-the-refrigerator-leftovers are so good.

1. Beat eggs.
2. Combine the rest of the ingredients and mix.
3. Pre-heat flat frying pans on medium heat, spray with Pam.
4. Cook on both sides. Roll while still hot.

Orange Butter:
10 oranges
1.5- 2 pounds butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar

1. Melt butter in a saucepan.
2. Slice and juice oranges. Strain.
3. Add juice to butter, stir.
4. Sweeten with sugar to taste. Serve hot.
