Cinnamon Sugar Cannabis Cookies
Yield: 16 - 18 cookies
Small Mixing Bowl
Large Mixing Bowl
Heart Shaped Cookie Cutter (2.5” x 3”)
2 ¾ cup flour
1 ½ cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
15 tablespoons regular butter
1 tablespoon THC-infused canna-butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cinnamon to garnish
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. While the oven is heating, in a small mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Stir together and set aside.
Using a small saucepan, combine the regular butter with the canna-butter and heat the two together until softened. Remove from heat and empty both kinds of butter into a large bowl. Using an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Slowly beat in the egg and vanilla, and gradually begin to blend in the dry ingredients. Once the mixture has been blended well, use your hands to roll the dough into a big ball. Place the dough ball in between two sheets of parchment paper and use a rolling pin to roll it out. Cut the dough using your heart shaped cookie cutter and place onto an ungreased baking sheet. Make sure to leave enough space in between the cookies so they have enough room to expand! Continue this process until all of the dough is gone.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges of the cookies turn golden brown. Remove from heat and let cool on the baking sheet for two minutes. Sprinkle the cookies with cinnamon and enjoy!
*Note: To make these cookies more potent, adjust the tablespoons of regular butter for canna-butter. For example, add 2 tablespoons canna-butter and 14 tablespoons regular butter. Just be sure the total amount of butter equates to 16 tablespoons total (or 1 cup).
