Hemp* flour cookies

I’ve been in Italy for a long weekend recently. I spent a couple of days near Ancona, Marche region. Simply beautiful!

Marche

During my stay I visited a stone mill (Mulino Tre Ponti, Polverigi – Ancona) with my Italian friends. Very interesting visit, the owner has been very friendly and explained us all the process, from the wheat harvesting to the flours. I purchased 11 Kg of different flours, spelt, whole wheat, oats and also 1 Kg of hemp flour. I was curious about this one, since I tried a hemp flour pizza lately and I found it amazing. The mill’s owner recommended to use about 5% of this flour in all my products, bread, pizza, cookies, etc.

So I prepared a batch of cookies using my usual recipe, simply adding 5% of hemp flour.To recap, 50% is rice flour, 45% is oats flour and the remaining 5% is hemp flour.

Mulino Tre Ponti – Flours

Ingredients

  • 250 gr rice flour
  • 225 gr oats flour
  • 25 gr hemp flour
  • 200 gr raw cane sugar (I use Muscovado sugar from Philippines)
  • 180 gr softened high quality butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 7 gr baking soda
  • a pinch of salt
  • 60 grams of chocolate muesli
  • 60 grams of ground Bronte pistachio

Hemp Cookies – Ingredients

Using a tilt-head stand mixer with the wire whip, mix the softened butter and the sugar until the mix gets fluffy and smooth.

Then add the 2 eggs and keep mixing for 2 minutes at speed 2. Add the vanilla paste that you have extracted from the vanilla bean using a sharp knife.

Mix in a bowl the three flours, the baking soda and a pinch of salt. Replace the wire whip with the flat beater and start mixing at low speed while adding the flour.

When all the flour has been added to the dough, add the ground pistachio and chocolate muesli and mix for one minute.

Shape the dough like a small “brick” and wrap it with the cling film. Put in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Flatten the dough with a rolling pin to a thickness of 7-8 mm. Cut the dough with a cookie cutter and bake the cookies for 10-15 minutes in a preheated oven (180°C).

* Important note:

Hemp is a species of Cannabis sativa BUT hemp is not the same as marijuana.

Hemp foods contain less than 0.003% Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and will NOT cause a psychoactive effect or a false-positive drug test.
