The small Pennsylvania Dutch cookies with the funny name are deceptively simple. It’s only cinnamon and sugar that gives them their terrific flavor. Because of this simplicity, I prefer to make the medicated version of this cookie with kief. I find the finished cookie tastes better, as the somewhat nutty flavor of the kief blends better than the more common herbal undertones of cannabis-infused butter.

In a large bowl, beat butter and remaining sugar with an electric mixer on high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle in kief or ground hash and beat until cannabis concentrate is evenly distributed in the butter. Beat in the egg, then beat in the vanilla. Reduce speed to medium-low and gradually mix in the flour mixture just until blended.
Scoop out cookies, about 1 1/2 tablespoons each, and roll between your hands into a semi-flattened ball.

Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes or until fairly firm and just beginning to brown. Transfer to wire rack to cool.
