Safety First

To kick things off, we’re starting with priority #1... the best practices for keeping medicated products (and loved ones) safe and out of harm’s way. Always (and we’re saying this twice because it’s just that important), always label infused treats to avoid confusion and accidental consumption. There are tons of ways to get creative here and keep unwanted hands out of the cookie jar. Here are some ideas to get you started: • Mark your treats with edible decals • Try special green sprinkles to label your special treats • Keep goodies in a childproof container and out of reach • See additional disclaimers on page 24

Pro Tips

Homogeneity: A perfect degree of homogeneity, or mixture quality, means ingredients appear in the same proportions in every part of the final creation. This is very important when making edibles so that the THC is distributed evenly and consistently across the batch. For achieving homogeneity with cannabutter baked goods it’s important to use the “creaming method.” This means thoroughly mixing softened Cannabutter and sugar together with a hand or stand mixer before adding any other ingredients. This takes 1-2 minutes and results in a light and fluffy mixture. For savory recipes it’s important to fully melt the Cannabutter at a low temperature and then slowly disperse the liquid butter across as much of the mixture as possible. Immediately after this step toss the whole mixture to create an even coat of Cannabutter.

Altitude All of these recipes have been adjusted for mile high baking. For even higher altitudes, slightly reduce your leavening agent (baking soda), slightly increase your oven temperature, add a touch extra flour, and add just a touch of liquid. There are plenty of great additional resources online. Mise en place This is French for “put in place”. In other words, when you are cooking or baking anything, it is best to work in a clean and organized manner. Go through your recipe and pre-scale your ingredients into separate bowls/containers. This will also ensure the proper ingredients go together. Baking is scientific so if ingredients aren’t scaled correctly, it will have an impact on the final product. Ingredients Before you embark on your baking journey, make sure all of your ingredients are within the expiration date. You will delight your palate and guests by using fresh ingredients. Equipment A lot of kitchen equipment can be on the pricey side. If you can afford it, a stand mixer yields the best results. If you are on a budget, thrift stores and friends/family can be a great resource to purchase or borrow equipment. Some recipes can and should be mixed by hand. Nesting bowls, rubber and offset spatulas, measuring cups and spoons are other tools for success.

Holidays and cookies go together like a fresh-rolled joint shared with friends. As for this kind of Cookie Swap… you may as well have the best of all worlds. If you haven’t had a Cookie Swap with friends, you’re in for a treat. A few actually... Here’s what you’ll need: Cookie Exchange

• A group of friends with each in charge of bringing their own treats to the table.

• Each friend should make enough cookies to share with everyone.

• Once at the party, you’ll sample the goods, then trade and package them all up so everyone leaves with a little something of everything, as well as delicious recipes to try at home. Including, of course, your creations.

• As always, be sure to let your friends know whenever your treats are infused with THC.
