1. High Apple Pie
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 teaspoons sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
- 14 tablespoons cold cannabis butter, diced
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten with 2 tablespoons cold water
- 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 3 pounds baking apples
- 2/3 cup sugar, plus more for sprinkling on the pie
- 1/4 cup unsalted cannabis butter
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Generous pinch of ground nutmeg
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt. Using your fingers, work the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles yellow corn meal
- Add egg and stir the dough together with a fork or by hand in the bowl. If the dough is dry, sprinkle up to a tablespoon more of cold water over the mixture.
- Form the dough into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, at least 1 hour.
- Put the lemon juice in a medium bowl.
- Peel, halve, and core the apples. Cut each half into 4 wedges.
- Toss the apple with the lemon juice. Add the sugar and toss to combine evenly.
- In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat.
- Add the apples, and cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves and the mixture begins to simmer, about 2 minutes.
- Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until the apples soften and release most of their juices, about 7 minutes.
- Strain the apples in a colander over a medium bowl to catch all the juice.
- Return the juices to the skillet, and simmer over medium heat until thickened and lightly caramelized ~10 minutes.
- In a medium bowl, toss the apples with the reduced juice and spices. Set aside to cool completely.
- Cut the dough in half. On a lightly floured surface, roll each half of dough into a disc about 11 to 12 inches wide.
- Layer the dough between pieces of parchment or wax paper on a baking sheet, and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
- Line the bottom of a 9-inch pie pan with one of the discs of dough, and trim it so it lays about 1/2 inch beyond the edge of the pan.
- Put the apple filling in the pan and mound it slightly in the center.
- Brush the top edges of the dough with the egg.
- Place the second disc of dough over the top.
- Fold the top layer of dough under the edge of the bottom layer and press the edges together to form a seal.
- Brush the surface of the dough with egg and then sprinkle with sugar. Pierce the top of the dough in several places to allow steam to escape while baking.
- Refrigerate for ~15 minutes.
- Bake the pie on a baking sheet until the crust is golden, about 50 minutes.
- Cool on a rack before serving.

This recipe gets you in for the long haul; nearly 15 hrs of prep time! Most of this time is waiting for the homemade ice cream to set and the cookies to cool, however.
FOR THE COOKIES:
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon fine salt
- 2 sticks softened cannabis butter (1/2 pound)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate (about 8 oz.)
- 1/2 cup roughly chopped bittersweet chocolate chunks (2 1/4 ounces)
- 1/2 gallon, about 6 cups mint chocolate chip ice cream
- Preheat an oven to 350F. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
- Beat the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar together until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes) on medium speed.
- Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then add the vanilla.
- At a low speed, beat in the dry ingredients in batches, until just blended, do not over beat or the dough will get tough.
- Stir in the chocolate chunks and chopped chocolate using a wooden spoon until well combined. Wrap the bowl with plastic and chill dough 30 minutes or overnight.
- Shape or scoop into 2-inch balls using a spoon or ice cream scoop.
- Place on cookie sheets, about 3 inches apart. (About 6 cookies per tray with 2 trays per batch.)
- Flatten them slightly and bake until golden brown around the edges, about 15 to 18 minutes.
- Let cool on tray about 3 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack and cool completely.
- Remove the ice cream from the freezer about 5 minutes to thaw/soften slightly before scooping.
- Using a 2-ounce ice cream scoop, place 3 scoops of ice cream (about 1/2 cup) onto the flat side of a cookie. Top with another cookie and press gently to flatten slightly.
- Using an offset spatula or a butter knife, smooth the ice cream around the edges of the cookie until the ice cream is flush with the outside of the cookie.
- Serve immediately or re-freeze* until ready to serve. *If re-freezing, thaw for about 4-5 minutes before serving.
