Thanksgiving is nearly here, and if you’re anything like us you’re still polishing off (stale) Halloween candy. It’s time to whip out all the kitchen tools you can find because stepping up from store bought to homemade is easier than you think. Thanks to Green Flower for the recipes we rounded here that are inspired by fall-favorite pumpkin and infused with all-season favorite, cannabis. Time for one tantalizing Thanksgiving table!

Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies with Cannabis Cream Cheese Filling 

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

2 Tbsp. cinnamon

1 Tbsp. ginger

1 Tbsp. ground cloves

1 cup vegetable oil

3 cups canned pumpkin puree (chilled)

2 large eggs

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 cups brown sugar (firmly packed)

 

Cannabis Cream Cheese Filling:

3 cups confectioners’ sugar

½ cup cannabis infused butter

8 oz. cream cheese (softened)

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

In a small bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves.  In a separate bowl, mix pumpkin puree, oil, eggs, and vanilla until fully combined. Add brown sugar and continue to stir. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir.

Drop ¼ cup spheres of dough onto cookie sheet. Space about an inch apart from one another. Bake for 15 minutes or until cookie begins to crack at top. Let cool. Sift confectioners’ sugar into a medium-sized bowl. In a separate bowl use a paddle or hand mixer to beat the cannabis infused butter and cream cheese until smooth. Add confectioners’ sugar and vanilla. Assemble filling and cookies sandwich-style. Chill before serving.
