Cannabis Italian Spritz Cookies with Anise

Christmas Cookie Baking Traditions

From our morning cup of coffee before letting Ransom come out of his room, to the special infused drinks we enjoy while decorating the tree, everything about Christmas for us has a special meaning.

These traditional Italian Spritz Cookies with Anise are no exception. They are the only holiday cookie, my husband, Chef Phil, really wants left out for Santa each year.

Before Making Cannabis-Infused Cookies

Depending on how strong you want your cookies, you can choose a combination of infusion options for a medicated cookie that is as potent as you want it.

You can easily make this recipe to be either traditional or cannabis-infused.

Making any recipe cannabis-infused is our specialty here, so we have multiple infusion options.

However, if you’re brand new to cannabis edibles, there are a few things to know before you get started so you can ensure you have a safe and enjoyable experience. 

You can get started with my Beginners Guide to Cannabis Edibles which will set you up for success in your cannabis kitchen.

Cannabis-Infused Spritz Anise Cookies

If you’re going for a cannabis-infused cookie, you can use either cannabutter or cannabis coconut oil and/or cannabis sugar.

One of the best reasons for making this recipe cannabis-infused is that it calls for a whole cup and a half of fat, which means there’s a lot of butter or oil that can be infused.

In addition to using a cannabis-infused oil, you can also use cannabis-infused sugar in this recipe.

For an extra-strong batch, use infused butter or oil AND infused sugar.
