Preheat Griddle to medium high heat (around 325 degrees). Make 1 batch of Pancake batter according to the back of the Aunt Jemima Pancake and Waffle Mix (from the back of the box). To that add the almond extract and a few drops of green food coloring until you achieve the desired color.
Put batter into a squirt bottle or a cup/ bowl with a spout. Each pancake will be a different size starting with a pancake that is around 3 inches in diameter. Slowly squeeze or pour out batter onto the griddle making 6 to 7 pancakes that decrease in size from 3 inches. The last pancake should only be around the size of a penny. Flip the pancakes once when the batter begins to form bubbles and remove them once the other side is starting to brown (around 45 seconds). Repeat this process for each Christmas Tree Stack. Recipe makes 3 to 4 stacks.
Assemble the trees stack the pancakes starting with the biggest to the smallest. Eat as is or add the garnishes. Put the fruit around the base of the tree with a few dollops of whipped cream. Add the mango star to the top with a toothpick. Next drizzle with the Aunt Jemima Original Syrup and then add sprinkles.
