Cookies are at the heart of every individual and loved by many that it is hard to resist these sweet chewy treats. Why not take this world renowned love and package it into a little jar for either special occasions for yourself or gifts for your loved ones? This recipe combines the comforting flavors of white chocolate cranberry nut cookies and swirls them together with citrus undertones of Orange Kush Kief. You can jar the ingredients, attach a cute little bow and even include a little tag with the instructions on how to cook these delicious little morsels. As they say, "Sharing is caring". This recipe yields 24 wonderfully flavored cookies at 1/2 gram of Orange Kush Kief each plus the strength of the cannabutter. Enjoy!
Mise en place:
1 canning jarA cute little piece of paper to tie to the jar for directions and perhaps a bow12 grams activated Orange Kush Kief1 1/4 cup old fashioned oats3/4 cup all purpose flour3/4 cup brown sugar3/4 teaspoon cinnamon3/4 teaspoon allspice1/3 cup dried cranberries1/3 cup white chocolate chips1/3 cup crushed pecans, walnuts or any nut of your choice1/2 teaspoon baking soda1/2 teaspoon salt
Directions for Jar:
Take the jar and make sure the inside is completely free of any particles. Add the first layer of flour, then the oatmeal followed by the baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, combine the Orange Kush Kief, brown sugar, cinnamon and allspice until well incorporated. I choose to use Kief so that the medication is not overly conspicuous in the jar. Now add this mixture into the jar as the fourth layer. The next layer will be the cranberries followed by the white chocolate chips and finished with the chopped nuts of your choice.
Top the jar with the canning lid and begin the process of writing out the instructions on a little piece of paper:
Mise en place:
6 teaspoons softened cannabutter1 whole egg1 teaspoon vanilla extract1 teaspoon grated fresh orange zest
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Add contents of the jar into a large bowl. Combine with cannabutter, egg, vanilla extract, and orange zest until fully combined. Drop dough onto a dark cookie sheet about 2 inches apart and bake for 11 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 8-10 minutes then enjoy :)
Tie your directions onto the cookie mix jar Wonderland style with a nice ribbon. If your recipient does not have cannabutter, you can make it for them and send it in a little jar along with the cookie mix jar.
This week I got many requests through my Facebook mail and Twitter DM's to create something sweet that would be astonishingly simple and easy to make. Overwhelmingly many people suggested a medicated ice cream for this weeks blog post. In Colorado, cannabis ice cream is a huge seller for many patients as it something anyone can enjoy any time of the year.
This recipe combines a store bought French Vanilla ice cream with allspice orange honey butter kief swirls. You can use kief that has been slowly collected over time in your grinders or you can buy it from a dispensary. I created this recipe this past Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit when served alongside pie. This is also a great recipe that can be used during the hotter months or even when you are craving a sundae.
Mise en place:
6 grams kief1.5 quart of organic French Vanilla ice cream1/2 cup organic honey3 pads organic butter1-2 shots vodka1 tablespoon vanilla oil extract1 teaspoon orange oil extract1 teaspoon allspice1 teaspoon cinnamon
In a pan on the lowest setting combine the butter, vodka, vanilla oil, orange oil, allspice, cinnamon and kief. Stir this mixture occasionally as it cooks to keep uniform consistency. The alcohol will cook out of this mixture while on the stove. Cook for 50 minutes and then add the honey. Cook for 10 minutes then pull from stove and cool for 5 minutes. During the 5 minutes your honey butter is cooling, scoop out all of the ice cream into a bowl and whip it into a soft serve state with a spoon.
Take the carton of ice cream and scoop 1 layer of ice cream back into the container. Then pour a thin layer of honey butter on top of the ice cream. Repeat. An ice cream layer and honey butter layer until you have used up both products. Put into the freezer for 30-60 minutes until the layers have set.
You have just made yourself a simple yet gourmet medicated ice cream that will swirl each time you take a scoop. This recipe makes 12 servings at 1/2 cup each with 1/2 gram of kief in it. If you feel this is too much kief reduce to 1/4 gram or if you feel this is too little increase to 1 gram. Scoop, maybe drizzle a little more honey with a cinnamon stick on top to garnish and enjoy! :)
