Mexican Wedding Cookies (aka Snowballs)

4 Recipes for the Ultimate Canna-Cookie Exchange Greenito

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup cannabutter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Powdered sugar for rolling
  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Cream together butters until light and fluffy. Add powdered sugar, vanilla, flour, and nuts. You want a nice cohesive dough!
  3. Scoop dough out into 1″ balls. Place on a greased or parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes until firm to the touch, but not browned.
  4. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before rolling still-warm cookies in remaining powdered sugar.


Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal Cookies


  • 10 envelopes of cinnamon flavored instant oatmeal
  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup softened cannabutter
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 white sugar
  • 1/4 cup of room temperature water
  1. Cream cannabutter and both sugars together until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, then slowly mix in flour and baking soda.
  2. Dump in all oatmeal envelopes as well as the water and let it all come together evenly. Cover and let chill in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°. Remove dough from fridge and scoop out into 1″ balls. Arrange on a greased or parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown. Top with cinnamon honey icing, and you’re set!


Peanut Brittle

4 Recipes for the Ultimate Canna-Cookie Exchange Greenito

  • 1 cup skinless peanuts
  • 1/2 cup whole hemp seeds
  • 1 tablespoon cannabutter, plus extra for greasing
  • 3/4 cup coarse brown sugar
  1. Roast peanuts on the stove — be careful not to let them burn — for 5-6 minutes, or until browned and nutty smelling. Remove from heat. In the same pan, lightly toast your hemp seeds for 4-5 minutes.
  2. Grease your work surface with cannabutter (the backside of a cookie sheet or just your counter top works great) as well as a rubber spatula.
  3. Heat cannabutter in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over low heat. Add sugar and cook until fully dissolved. Cook for an additional 5 minutes. Check to see if your sugar mixture is ready by dissolving a small “ball” of it in cold water – if the ball drops into a solid form and rests at the bottom, then your sugar is ready. If it pools into a lump, cook a bit longer.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in your peanuts and hemp seeds. Mix thoroughly and quickly!
  5. Pour out onto greased work surface. Flatten it out using your greased spatula, keeping it less than 1″ thick.
  6. Allow to cool before shattering the peanut brittle into ready-to-eat pieces.
