2. Weed Leaf Christmas Cookies
Although chocolate chip cookies are a fan favourite when it comes to baking, we thought we would mix it up a little bit and introduce you to the weed leaf Christmas cookie. This marijuana version of a butter cookie was created by the Bald Brothers Cannabis Distillery. It is one of the easiest recipes out there so even if you are already baked you can still make these sweet treats. All you have to do is mix the ingredients below and roll 2-inch sized pieces of dough into balls and flatten each ball with a fork on a greased cookie sheet. Once your oven is heated to 375 degrees slide that cookie sheet in and bake for 13-15 minutes. It’s that easy.
• 1 ½ cups sifted all-purpose flour
• ½ cup cornstarch
• ½ cup white sugar
• 1 cup cannabutter
3. Peppermint Pot Brownies
