It’s the most wonderful time of the year. To celebrate National Cookie Day this December, Love Hemp ambassador and food blogger @pescatarianldn has created this CBD cookie treat. Simply combine CBD oil drops with her easy-to-follow recipe for a delicious snack this holiday season.
INGREDIENTS (Recipe makes 24 cookies)
6ml CBD Oil Liquid Drops 1200mg strength - 10mg per cookie (natural or orange flavour)
435g Plain Flour
1tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
1tbsp Ground Ginger
1tbsp Ground Cinnamon
1/2tsp Ground Allspice
140g Unsalted Butter, Softened
150g Light Brown Soft Sugar
150ml Dark Treacle
1 Egg, at room temperature
Writing Icing (to decorate) or homemade icing (170ml icing sugar and a 4 - 5tbsp water)
In a large bowl mix your flour, salt, bicarbonate of soda and spices.
In a separate bowl, or stand mixer if you have one, beat the sugar and butter until creamy. Add your treacle and CBD oil until evenly distributed and then beat your egg until combined.
On a low speed, mix the wet ingredients and dry ingredients. You will end up with a thick consistency. Roll this into a ball, cover with cling film and chill in the refrigerator for 3 - 4 hours or overnight.
Once chilled, remove the dough from the fridge and cut into two. Cover and place one half and place it back into the fridge.
Preheat the oven to 160oC and line two baking trays with a non-stick baking mat or greaseproof paper.
Lightly flour the surface and roll out the remaining dough until it’s c0.5cm thick. It is normal for the dough to crack a little at first - use your fingers to smooth it together again and keep working.
Using cutters, cut out the gingerbread and place on the baking tray with a gap between them.
Repeat steps 6 - 7 on the other half of the dough.
Bake for 14 - 18 minutes. Note: that the cookies will need less time in the oven if you are using mini cutters or a thinner base has been rolled. Keep an eye on them!
Allow cookies to cool for 5 mins before placing them on a cooling rack to cool completely.
Decorate your cookies and enjoy!
