These little sugar dusted spice cookies are an important part of the holiday celebration for many cultures. But making Marijuana Pfeffernusse will make any celebration even more celebratory!

Medicating Marijuana Pfeffernusse with Kief

I like to make the traditional German cookies with kief as I think the spicy notes in the kief blend well with the spices in the cookies. Find more information on how to make and cook with kief and hash at this link.

A note about the Dosing for the Marijuana Pfeffernusse recipe!

Each of the 32 tiny marijuana pfeffernusse cookies this recipe makes will have about 10 mg THC, IF you used decarboxylated average kief (40% THC).  To adjust the dosage up or down for your personal needs, and to reflect the strength of the kief you are cooking with, be sure to take my FREE 10 minute online Dosing Class that will teach you how to do it, or use my handy dosage calculator tools that do all the math for you (see below).
