Cinnamon Bun Pancakes

Since my friend Vertigo B turned me on to these pancakes 2 weeks ago, I've made them 4 times. They've become the staple Saturday morning breakfast. This morning, Gabby asked if we could have them on Sunday mornings too. I guess she really likes them. Anything with frosting must be good, right?

The above photo is not mine. I couldn't grab my cell phone fast enough to snap a picture of my pile of pancakes. Imagine if you will 3 sets of grubby, icing filled hands (because they couldn't keep their hands out of the frosting before the pancakes were served) grabbing each and every last one of the yummy cinnamon disks. So thank you Pioneer Woman for the beautiful photo.
Now, down to business. Here's what you've been waiting for. The recipe. You better make 2 batches of the frosting...I'm talking from experience here.
