Baking sweet treats is serious business around the holidays. The oven is basically a revolving door with trays of stacked cookies flying in and out. Whether you’re a purist with a family recipe that still shines or a new baker looking for something bold to whip up, there's a special batch you may want to consider. Yep, we're talking about cannabis cookies.
We’ve put together a list of standout edible weed recipes you can bring to any holiday party (with due warning). The kick of coconut almond macaroon or gingersnap will mask the taste of cannabis, leaving your strait-laced uncle to ask, "Is there even weed in here?" while reaching for his third. Now that's good baking. Have a Happy Holidaze with these 12 weed cookie recipes.
Topped with a layer of weed-induced caramel frosting, these molasses-spiked morsels are the sweets you never expected would find their way into your holiday baking—but are glad you gave em' a shot. Think of them as the perfectly spiced gingersnaps grandma used to make, only with something a little extra in order. Made with cinnamon, molasses, and ginger, the tasty delights only need 10 minutes in the oven. One batch makes 30 cookies, so put on a pot of tea, throw these in the oven, and freeze any leftover dough for next time.
If you need a break from classic gingerbreads, we hear you. There's definitely a time and place for crispy snowflake-like cookies with a different kind of look and zing—one of fresh orange zest and almond. They're drizzle-coated with chocolate so, as you can imagine, that combination is killer. Made with other ingredients like coconut oil, coconut milk, gluten-free all-purpose flour, and brown rice syrup, these treats are vegan and gluten-free too. But, as a reminder before licking the delicious spoon too many times— there's definitely cannabis-infused coconut oil in here.
When cookie dough cravings hit, cookies that require zero baking are a must. Usually sneaking a chunk of cookie dough means risking the chance of a belly ache after eating raw egg. This recipe, on the other hand, is thrown together sans egg, with weed butter, light brown sugar, granulated sugar, milk, vanilla extract, flour, and semisweet chocolate chips. These truffle bites aren't finished until they're doused in chocolate too, a step we will never, ever skip. You can store them up to a week in an airtight container, which is also ideal for a cookie you should refrain from devouring more than one or two of at once.
Oatmeal cookies are always a hit on the dessert table. These dense treats are made with raisins, oats, pecans, and the wild-card ingredient of cannabis-infused butter. Bake until slightly browned and serve. But do let the people know what they're biting into!
Peanut butter cookies are a no-brainer. They're both salty and sweet, and we often reach for them when a classic chocolate chip just isn't cutting it. This recipe, based on a grandma's very old recipe, is protein-filled with a touch of weed butter.
Feeling stressed through the holidays? These cookies can take the edge off. Packed with brown sugar, vanilla, oat flour, oats, cinnamon, ginger, dried cranberries, dark chocolate chips, and cannabis-infused coconut oil, you'll forget your biting into something healthyish.
Toffee isn't a flavor you wildly crave through the holidays like a gingerbread or shortbread. But once you get a taste of the butterscotch-like bits, it'll be in your baking rotation for some time. This medicated recipe is sweetened up with a toffee chip-chocolate chip combination and nutty with your pick of walnuts or pecans.
You wait all year to stuff your face with sugar cookies so might as well make them gorgeous. If your cookie recipient is cool with the surprise ingredient of cannabis butter, we see these as the perfect hostess gift for any holiday party. Plus, you can regulate how potent your sweet treats come out by swapping out any portion of the cannabutter with standard butter.
Toasty coconut on the outside and with dense almond on the inside, these medicated macaroons are a fun go-to when taking a break from your spiked eggnog. These fancy-looking desserts are vegan and gluten-free too.
Not all chocolate-filled desserts are as unhealthy as you think. These chocolate bites are on the healthier side thanks to wholesome oatmeal, salty peanut butter, a dose of cannabutter, instant espresso, honey, dried coconut, and cocoa.
Gluten-free, festive, and most importantly, delicious. The base of these cookies is made up of chia seeds, brown rice flour, and garbanzo bean flour, and they're coated in a frosting packed with citrus zest, cannabutter, sugar, and maple syrup. Santa will be thrilled if you leave these out for him.
Peanut butter and Sriracha are a match made in heaven on any chicken satay or in a noodle dish. Never did we think to marry the two in a dessert, but combined with flaxseeds and brown sugar, sweet meets spicy and that little oomph is just what our dessert lineup needed.
