Chuey’s Chewy Oatmeal/Raisin Delight
OK, so who is Chuey? Soy el doctor Chuey (Jessie). Jessie is the closest thing you get to Jay down where I live. Nurse Nancy Wife and I made these oatmeal raisin cookies to help our Canny Bus Trip Kit driver recover from a recent illness. Cannabis cookies are great when you are laid up. They stimulate appetite, fight the nausea of chemotherapy or narcotics, reduce pain, and are very nutritious.
We made these cookies strong. They’d be chewier if we used dairy butter in the mix but we went with potency as these cookies are truly medical. Nancy and I also looked for the most organic ingredients possible as these treats were for a sick friend and she doesn’t need any preservatives.
¾ cup (12 tablespoons) Better Bud Butter (room temperature)
¼ cup (4 tablespoons) Unsalted dairy butter
1 cup white sugar (granulated)- Turbinado better says Chuey’s Ms. Tamale
1 cup brown sugar (firmly packed-light or dark)
2-3 cups unbleached white flour (sifted)
2-2½ cups steel cut oats
1 cup organic sun dried raisins (even a bit more is better)
1 cup organic currants
1 cup chopped pecans
3 tsp vanilla extract (Ms. Tamale says the best vanilla is Spice Islands pure 100% Bourbon vanilla extract 70 proof)
1 tsp kosher salt
1½ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Coat a baking pan with butter or canola oil. Combine the dry ingredients (flour, salt, cinnamon, baking soda). Cream together the softened bud butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Fold the mixed dried ingredients into the creamed mixture. Stir in the oats, raisins, currants, and pecans. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for at least one hour. Chuey likes to take golf ball size (well to tell the truth baseball size) chunks of dough, roll them into a ball and slightly flatten them in the palm of your hand, place on baking pan and squish down just a bit more. Don’t crowd the cookies.
Baking time at 300 degrees: Bake approximately 18 minutes depending upon the size of the cookies. Be careful not to overcook as these treats will dry up a bit as they cool. Cool the cookies on a rack and keep them in an airtight container for storage.
Yield: How many cookies you get depends upon what size you make them. Smaller cookies (three to five dozen) will cook much faster than large cookies (two to three dozen). One large cookie produced day long relaxation and pain relief for one medical patient with chronic muscle spasm.
Note to diabetics: You can substitute most of the sugar with a combination of fructose and other sweeteners. Portion control of the normal recipe will insure no nasty blood sugar peaks.
Recommended Beverage: Summer- home made lemonade, Winter- Double lattes
