Yields approx 32 cookies with medium sized cookie cutter, or 12 larger cookies. Decorate with sugar, cocoa, icing or any other delicious toppings.
2/3 cup molasses
2/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 heaping tablespoon ground ginger
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground allspice
1 tsp ground cloves
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup Cannalife Botanicals Olive Oil * http://www.cannalifebotanicals.ca/product/cannabis-olive-oil-250ml/
1 large egg, lightly beaten
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp table salt
Step 1: Stir together molasses, brown sugar, and spices in a 4- to 5-quart heavy saucepan and bring to a boil over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, and remove from heat. (Helpful tip: spray measuring cup with liquid cooking spray for easier pouring/cleanup.)
Step 2: Stir in baking soda (mixture will foam up)
Step 3: Stir in the cannabis infused Cannalife Botanicals Olive Oil last and thoroughly stir to incorporate evenly.
Step 4: Add egg and stir until combined.
Step 5: Stir in 3 1/2 cups flour and salt. (Helpful tip: use a dough mixer if you have one and add the flour a bit at a time for better mixing)
Step 6: Preheat oven to 325°F.
Step 7: Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and knead, dusting with as much of remaining 1/4 cup flour as needed to prevent sticking, until soft and easy to handle, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Let rest for 10 minutes.
Step 8: For cookie cutters: Roll out remaining dough to 1/4 inch thick on a lightly floured surface. Cut out as many cookies as possible with cookie cutter and carefully transfer with offset spatula to 2 silpat-lined baking sheets, arranging them about 1 inch apart. They do spread so be careful not to put too close together! I’ve found if you have trouble transferring them, popping them into the freezer for a few min helps. For cake pans: Oil pans well and fill with a ball made of approximately 2 tbsps of dough. Pat down into pan forms.
Step 9: Bake cookies in upper and lower thirds of oven, switching position of sheets halfway through baking, until edges are slightly darker, 10 to 12 minutes total (watch carefully toward end of baking; cookies can burn easily). Transfer cookies to racks to cool completely. Make more cookies with remaining dough and scraps.
Step 10: Decorate the cookies with icing and decorations after the cookies have cooled.
