Mix until combined. Next add the egg and mix well. Remove the whisk attachment and replace with the paddle attachment. Add the vanilla, baking powder and pancake mix. Mix until just combined. Freeze the dough for about 20 minutes. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove the dough from the freezer and form into 1.25" balls and roll them around in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Place on the lined baking sheet, 2 inches apart and freeze again for 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Remove from freezer and bake for 12-14 minutes or until they are fully cooked.
