Sugar & Spice

Sugar & Spice

It's the holidays. Are you cooking with cannabis this year? Well, we think the ultimate cookie deserves a new cut, don’t you?

RECIPE AND FOOD STYLING BY CARRIE PURCELL

Sweet Leaf Sugar Cookies
Makes about 2 dozen three-inch cookies

1 cup cannabis butter, room temperature 1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
2 teaspoons baking powder
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
2 1⁄2 cups all purpose flour, plus more for dusting completely

Preheat oven to 350° F.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, add cream, butter and sugar until smooth. Add vanilla and egg. Mix until combined. In a separate bowl, combine baking powder, salt and flour. Add gradually to the wet ingredients and mix until combined – dough will be crumbly.

Lightly knead dough until it comes together and take out half. Roll out on a sheet of parchment paper to 1⁄4-inch thick, lightly dusting with flour if dough gets too sticky. Press with a cannabis-shaped cookie cutter and carefully transfer cuts to a parchment lined baking sheet. Gather, knead together and re-roll any scraps. Bake 6-8 minutes.

Let cool 5 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to a rack to cool completely. Decorate as desired!
