Amber Craig Blog, Recipes 0 Comments

Cooking with your medical cannabis can be a great way to ingest your medicine, but always start low with dosage and never go above your prescribed amount of cannabis. For Christmas coming up, a recipe for cannabis-infused gingerbread.

Ingredients: 

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 10 tbsp Cannabutter, softened.
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1 – 2 tbsp milk
  • Icing (icing mix or pre-made icing is easiest)

*This is easiest with an electric mixer

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl with electric mixer, cream together sugar and butter until well combined. Mix in egg yolk and vanilla. Mix in molasses and 1 tablespoon of milk.
  4. With mixer on low, slowly add in dry ingredients and mix until combined. Finish by adding in the remaining milk to bring dough together.
  5. Divide the dough into two equal parts, and roll each part out evenly to approximately 1/4 inch thick. You can chill the dough on a cookie sheet in the freezer for 10 to 20 minutes (you need it hard enough for cookie cutters).
  6. Cut dough into shapes with cookie cutters, and transfer cookies to a cookie sheet, adding space between each one.
  7. Bake cookies in the preheated oven for 8 minutes or until slightly set.
  8. Remove cookies from oven and cool before adding icing to decorate.
