How to Make Cannabis Cinnamon Twists
Yes, you can make marijuana cinnamon twists — and it's easy. This is one of my favorite recipes because it's made with puff pastry, one of the most versatile and of course delicious things on the planet.
The story behind this recipe is simple: We had to go visit a good friend who had just had hip surgery, we simply had to bring something "good"
By chance, we just happened to have some canna butter lying around, so we decided to make some puff pastry cinnamon twists — with a twist, of course.
What you will need for this recipe:
- 2 teaspoons of regular unsalted butter (melted)
- 3 Tablespoons of Canna Butter (melted)
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 Tablespoon of milk
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground cardamon
- 1 package of chilled puff pastry, preferably all butter, thaw if frozen.
- 1.2 cup of your favorite nuts (pecans, walnuts, pistachios, whatever you like)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and lightly butter 2 baking sheets with a small amount of butter (not the canna butter)
In a small bowl, mix together the canna butter and the regular butter until combined.
In another bowl, lightly beat the egg yolks with the milk.
And yes in yet another bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon, and cardamon.
On a lightly floured work surface roll the puff pastry out into 2 8 x 11 inch rectangles about 1/4 inch thick.
Brush each sheet of puff pastry with the egg and milk mixture, and then sprinkle each with some of the sugar and spice mixture
Sprinkle the crushed nuts evenly over one of the sheets, leave about 1/4 inch around the border.
Place the other sheet, sugar and spice side down on top of the nutty sheet and firmly press around the edges to seal in the goodness.
Brush the top with some (not all) of the canna butter mixture, then sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture. Now using a piza cutter, cut the pastry block into 3/4 inch thick strips, pinch the strips along each side to enclose the mixture inside, and then twist each strip 3 times, ensuring that you have the pinched edges staying together.
Place them well apart on a prepared baking sheet and brush once again with the remaining canna butter/ butter mixture.
Bake in the preheated 400 degree oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden.
Remove immediately and allow to cool on wire rack.
