U.S. National Peach Month is in August each year, and it is not easy to imagine summertime without this juicy summer fruit. The peach season begins in June and lasts until the end of August. They say that August is when peaches are at their peak.
Pick up some fresh peaches today and try this recipe at your house with me.
2 cups all-purpose flour, plus 2 tablespoons
¾ teaspoon canna salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 tablespoons canna butter
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup canna sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large ripe peaches, peeled, pitted, and cut into 1/4-inch dice (about 1 ¾ cups)
1/3 cup peach jam or preserves
3/4 cup white chocolate chips (optional)
2 tablespoons fine sanding sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Whisk together flour, salt, and baking soda.
Beat butter and granulated sugar with a mixer on medium-high speed until fluffy, about 4 minutes. Reduce speed to low. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add flour mixture, and beat until just combined. Add peaches and jam, and beat until just combined.
Using a 1 1/2-inch ice cream scoop or a tablespoon, drop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment, spacing about 2 inches apart. (If not baking all of the cookies at once, refrigerate the dough between batches; dough can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 2 days.) Combine sanding sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle each cookie with 1/8 teaspoon of cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Bake cookies, rotating sheets halfway through, until golden brown and just set, 11 to 13 minutes. Let cool on sheets for 5 minutes, and then transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
These cookies are best the day they’re baked. They will soften at the edges after a couple of days, but they’ll still taste delicious.
Use more or less canna sugar and butter in this recipe to achieve your desired potency.
Always start with a small amount when testing the potency of your edibles.
