In a pot, bring butter and water to a boil and melt the butter. Add the Betty Crocker pancake mix and stir with a wooden spoon until the batter comes together and is thoroughly mixed. Leave to cool, then pour into stand mixer and add the eggs one at a time, then finally the vanilla.

Pour the batter into a piping bag fitted with a star tip. Heat up a good quantity of oil and pipe in portions of the batter (the length is optional). Turn the pieces on a medium heat until golden brown.

Dip into prepared syrup, then decorate with pistachios.

For the syrup (sheera): In a pot, bring the water and sugar to a boil. Once it starts to boil, add the rest of the ingredients and leave to thicken on low heat for 20 minutes.
