It has now become chilly at nights as Fall is already here. My growing season has just ended and I am absolutely satisfied with the result of the harvest. When I trimmed the buds, I saved the sugar leaves, dried and pulverized them so I could use them to bake edibles. So here is one idea that I have tried which is adding this as ingredient to my cookies. You can read my post on how I made the sugar leaves here.
Canna Vanilla Crescent Cookies
Today, I am sharing how to make a traditional vanilla cookies that are normally baked during the Christmas season in Austria. These cookies are being loved by old and young alike because they are so delish. Here in this edition, I have enhanced the recipe by adding pulverized cannabis sugar leaves, those are the tiny leaves growing in between the flowers..In terms of real sugar, should you have some sugar issues, you can substitute this with Stevia. Although the all purpose-flour will still have some carbohydrates, you may also use whole wheat flour since it digests longer than the all purpose flour, thus avoiding the rise of sugar level quickly.
The sugar leaves are full of trichomes and although they have lesser THC, they still add potency to the cookies baked. It can take an hour before the first cookie starts to digest and the effect being felt. The sugar leaves have a combination of indica and sativa strains.
Canna Vanilla Crescent Cookies
Ingredients (makes about 48-50 pieces)
200 grams all Purpose Flour
1 tbsp canna sugar leaves
1 tbsp. coconuts flakes
100 grams ground walnuts 0r mixed ground nuts
50 grams confectioner´s sugar or 5 tablespoons stevia powder
1 Pack Vanilla sugar such as from Dr. Oetker
200 grams cold butter cut into small cubes
3 - 4 tablespoons skimmed milk (less fat)
confectioner´s sugar or sugar substitute to coat the cookies...
- Mix thoroughly flour and sugar followed by the nut mixture, coconut flakes and the canna sugar leaves. Add the cold butter cut into cubes and blend all ingredients using your hands to a smooth dough, add the milk so that the dough becomes soft and smooth and easy to handle.
2... Divide the dough into 5 parts ....rolling each into a long thumb-thick size portion then cut equally with a knife as big as the size of your thumbnail. roll the dough between your two palms to form a crescent shape cookies.
3...Place each formed dough on a baking pan lined with baking paper, and arrange them in rows... bake in a preheated oven of 180°C for about 15 minutes... remove and place on a platter and coat the cookies with sugar ... if necessary, add more confectioner´s sugar to coat when they cool down..
4.... When the cookies have cooled down, place these in a cookie jar or tin can and cover... they will become softer a couple of days after. These cookies can also be frozen so it is possible to make them in advance. Thaw about an hour before serving.
I tried about 6 cookies together with a cup of tea. After about an hour the effect of the cookies was good, was relaxing and one could feel a mellow head spin which will lead you to stay at the couch. The legs tingle for a while but will become lesser once you are seated and legs are relaxed on the couch. I would recommend that you try this in the late afternoon or early evening for relaxation.
I hope you will try my cookies and give me a feedback. It is very easy to make even if you do not have baking experience. These are the fave cookies that even kids can make.
