Puree 3/4 can peaches by placing slices only, no juice, in a medium mixing bowl and using a Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender, pulse a few times to get a chunky (apple sauce) texture.
Heat Cuisinart Chef's Classic™ 11" Square griddle on medium-high heat with shortening. In a small bowl or cup, using hand blender, mix egg and oil.
In medium mixing bowl, combine pancake mix, milk, egg and oil mixture and brown sugar. Using hand blender, whisk until smooth and bumpy. (Don't mix too much, pancakes will be tough) Fold in peach puree.
Pour mixture onto hot griddle a 1/4 cup at a time to create large puddles of dough. Turn once, after bubbles appear in dough ovals. Cook in batches. Pancakes should be browned.
Serve pancakes on plates with remaining peaches on top. Add butter and syrup, to taste.
Note: shortening doesn't burn as easily. Butter is fine to use.
