No matter what, I always try to do a lot of baking during the winter holidays every year.
While my passion for decorating isn’t always strong enough to get on a ladder every December to hang LED lights, I love consuming the delicious fruits of my labor after I spend a few hours in the kitchen baking cookies, pies, cakes, and other delectable desserts.
My mother is the one who taught me how to bake, and before her it was my grandmother who came up with all of the family recipes. Some families aren’t this lucky to have one, let alone two, strong matriarchs in their recent bloodline. And not just that, but have both of them be amazing cooks with phenomenal holiday meals every single year. My dad’s mother is a terrible chef and usually buys frozen lasagna for Christmas Eve dinner every single year. My contribution to the family holiday meal this year is a box full of different cookie assortments. I love making sugar cookies especially, using all sorts of different kinds of frosting and sprinkles. I’m also making a separate batch that will be infused with cannabis oil. This will be the first time I make cannabis infused sugar cookies, but I’m extremely excited for the results. I expect them to be delicious and potent, as I don’t experience many effects from weak cannabis edibles. A lot of the cannabis edibles sold at cannabis dispensaries are so low potency that I and many others like myself experience few if any effects from them. You need enough THC and terpenes just to experience a well rounded high, otherwise the effects are minimal.
