by Kristopher Nelson, Hippos Chesterfield Assistant Manager
¾ cup (150 g) granulated sugar
½ cup (100 g) packed light brown sugar
1 tablespoon nonfat dry milk powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
2 teaspoons of Cannabutter (Orange Walker or Jelly Rancher)
6 ½ tablespoons heavy whipping cream
4 large egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Powdered sugar, for dusting
1 cup Corn Flakes (save some for topping)
Pie Crust 9” inch (Dough or Cookie)
Whipped Cream for Topping
The filling is a mixture of sugar, milk powder, egg yolk, heavy cream, butter, cannabutter and vanilla. This can be mixed together with a whisk by hand or by using the whisk attachment for your stand mixer. Pour this liquid filling into the pie crust and bake.
Position the rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350-400° F.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (or you can whisk vigorously by hand), combine both sugars, milk powder, cornflakes, and salt in a medium bowl to blend. Add melted butter and whisk until blended. Add cream, then egg yolks and vanilla, and whisk until well combined and mixture is golden/pale in color.
Roll out the dough and fit it into a 9-inch pie pan that has been sprayed with baking spray.
Pour filling into crust. Bake pie at 350-400° F for 30-40 minutes (filling may begin to bubble). Reduce oven temperature to 325° F. Continue to bake pie until filling is brown in spots and set around edges but center still moves slightly when pie dish is gently shaken, about 20 minutes longer. Cool pie for 2 hours in pie dish on rack. Chill uncovered overnight.
Sift powdered sugar lightly over top of the pie.
Top with Cornflakes and Whipped Cream
Cut pie into wedges and serve cold.
Note from the Chef, Kristopher Nelson:
Cooking is best when it is from the soul, from a Chef that cares.
My grandmother and her mother did a lot of cooking. My father also did a lot of cooking. My inspiration comes from my family members. The scents you smell when you walk into the house bring you comfort and come from a place of warmth.
I like to create recipes that replicate these happy times and this amazingness. Everyone knows the smell of their favorite holiday, even if it’s their birthday. I try to replicate that every time I cook.
Pro Tip from Kristopher: Once you make your cannabis butter you can add it to your favorite recipes. Whatever amount your recipe calls for, cut it half with butter and half with cannabutter.
Consumption Tip: I would always caution do not overdose yourself. You may not feel it after the first bite, or even within the first hour. Onset consumption may last up to six hours. Consume with caution. For the more experienced infused eater, increase at your own tolerance level. There is a dosing chart on Elevate Holistics https://elevate-holistics.com/ if you have questions.
