Spruce Up Your Holidays with Christmas Cookie Edibles!

Graphic that reads Spruce up the Holidays with Christmas Cookie Edibles! It shows a silver metal pot, a bowl filled with ground green cannabis, and a plate with a large pat of butter and a fork.

Layne Alfred |

With cannabis-infused butter, you can make virtually any dish a high-inducing “edible.” Why not make one of the most delicious and simple Christmas treats extra special with just the bud you have lying around? We decided to put an Ooze twist on the classic Christmas sugar cookie, because everyone needs a little extra cheer this year. In order to make this recipe with a dash of magic, you’ll first need cannabis-infused butter, which you can make in a pinch!

 

How to Make Cannabutter

If you’re more of a low-maintenance chef (me!), you might opt for a cannabis butter-maker. All you have to do with these neat devices is add butter or oil, water and ground marijuana.

 Preparing to make cannabutter. A silver mixing bowl is shown with a wooden spoon resting inside, there is a glass measuring cup filled with cannabis nugs, a few spare nugs on the wooden table, and a full stick of butter in the wrapper.

Even without a butter maker, you can still make cannabutter if you have at least a ½ ounce of weed. The first step is to decarboxylate your weed, or “decarb” it, by laying your ground bud on a baking dish and bake it at 220F. If you don’t want to taint your kitchenware, lay your ground nugs onto a heat-resistant Ooze dab mat before sticking it in the oven.

 

Older, dryer weed, should only be in the oven for about 20 minutes. For medical grade weed, go for 45 minutes. Anything moist may need to bake for an hour. Once the bud has darkened to a brownish green, you can get started on your butter infusion!

 

Directions:

  1. In a saucepan, heat 1 ½ cups of water and 8 ounces of butter or oil on low.
  2. Once the butter is melted, add your ½ ounce of decarbed cannabis.
  3. Let mixture simmer for 4 hours. Stir every half hour to avoid burning.
  4. After 4 hours, strain mixture with a cheesecloth or metal strainer into a container. Let it cool to room temperature and then store it in the refrigerator, or use in your sugar cookies right away.

Once you’ve made your cannabutter, the rest is super simple. Choose your favorite sugar cookie recipe (or try the one below) and simply substitute your cannabutter for the butter or margarine. We picked a simple sugar cookie recipe to show you how easy it is to sub in your cannabis-infused butter to make your own edibles.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon table salt

Directions:

  1. Combine 1 cup of your cannabutter and 1 cup of sugar in the bowl and beat until creamy and well-combined.
  1. Add 1 large egg and 1 ½ teaspoons of vanilla extract and beat until combined.
  1. In a separate bowl, whisk together 2 ½ cups of flour, ¾ teaspoon of baking powder, and ¾ teaspoon of salt.
  1. Gradually add dry ingredients into wet until completely combined.
  1. Lay out a large piece of plastic wrap and transfer approximately half of the dough onto the wrap (dough will be quite sticky at this point, that's OK!).
  1. Cover with clear wrap and mold into a disk. Repeat with remaining cookie dough in another piece of cling wrap.
  1. Transfer dough to refrigerator and chill for at least 2 hours.
  1. Once dough has finished chilling, preheat oven to 350F (175C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  1. Generously dust a separate, clean surface with flour and deposit one chilled cookie dough disk onto the surface. Lightly flour the dough and roll out to 1/8" (for thinner, crispier cookies) or 1/4" (for thicker, softer cookies). Continue to add flour as needed both on top of and beneath the dough so that it doesn't stick.

  1. Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes and use a spatula to transfer shapes to prepared baking sheet.
  1. Bake on 350F (175C) for 9-10 minutes, or until edges just begin to turn lightly golden brown.
  1. Allow cookies to cool completely on cookie sheet before moving and frosting.

Gingerbread Cannabis Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour.
  • 1/2 cup cannabis-infused butter.
  • 1/2 cup regular unsalted butter.
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar.
  • 1/4 cup molasses.
  • 1 large egg.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger.
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves.
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda.
  • Optional: Icing for decorating.

 

Directions: 

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  1. Combine dry ingredients: In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground cloves, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
  1. In a large bowl, beat the cannabis-infused butter, regular butter, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  1. Add the molasses, egg, and vanilla extract to the butter and sugar mixture. Mix until well combined.
  1. Combine wet and dry ingredients: Gradually add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients, stirring until the dough comes together. Be careful not to overmix.
  1. Chill the dough: Wrap the cookie dough in plastic wrap and chill it in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. This step helps the dough firm up and makes it easier to handle.
  1. Roll out the dough: On a floured surface, roll out the chilled dough to about 1/4 inch thickness.
  1. Use gingerbread cookie cutters to cut out shapes and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  1. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.
  1. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  1. Decorate (Optional): Once the cookies are completely cooled, you can decorate them with icing, sprinkles, or any other toppings of your choice.

 

Ooze Pro Tip: Try decorating these guys with green frosting and little pot leaves, or other indications they’re not like the other desserts on the table!
