Holiday Cookie Recipes
If the holidays aren’t a time to be baking, I don’t know when is. It’s cold, you may or may not be around family or friends, there’s time off from work. It’s a great time to unwind, relax, get your mixing bowls out, and start baking up some sugary treats for you and your loved ones. If you feel like making these canna-cookies, all it takes is mixing in a few drops of THC oil, or substituting butter for cannabutter or cannamilk, also easily made at home. However you choose to make them, cookies are a sure way to create a sense of coziness, whether you celebrate the holidays or not.
Ok, first things first. Whisky Bacon Cookies with Pecans. Yes. We go hard here, folks. These cookies have a holistic mix of both sweet and savory, as well as both chew and crunch. The ingredients called for butter, which is a good opportunity to use cannabutter if you’d like these to give you an extra little buzz.
Next on the list are Soft Toffee Cookies. The recipe for these is for small batches, in case you feel like whipping some up and not sharing, lol. They’re light but filled with gooey chunks of toffee that’ll give you just the right mouthfeel.
These Vegan Lemon Cookies are a lighter option for those that prefer not to use animal products. They’re gluten free too, and were developed by Erin McKenna, a vegan pastry chef with a bakery on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
These Peanut Butter and Chocolate Swirl Cookies seem like they’ll be incredible. The recipe is definitely both time and work intensive, but totally worth it. Two flavors of batter, along with cookie dough, are swirled together and frozen to create a cookie dough log that can be kept in storage for a while, which is great for when you just want to bake a few vs. an entire batch.
Next, we have a recipe for Triple Threat Cookies. The triple threat comes in the form of chocolate cookie batter, along with melted chunks of both white chocolate and regular chocolate. These are a community pick on the Food52 website, and will definitely satisfy any chocolate cravings.
Finally, these Coconut Sugar Cookies are an interesting take on a holiday classic. They use coconut sugar, which has that wonderful coconut taste, and brings out the spiciness in the rest of the ingredients. Coconut sugar is also a great alternative to regular sugar and can be used in a variety of recipes.
