Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Servings: 30 pieces
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup of cold water
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup cannabutter
- 2 tablespoons icing sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- Non-stick cooking spray
- 9x12 deep dish baking pan
- Medium saucepan
- Large sealable freezer bag
- Parchment paper
Preheat the oven to 400°F and while you wait for it to warm up, spray down the baking sheet with a good layer of non-stick cooking spray.
Next, you’ll need to combine the base ingredients for the funnel fries, and to do that, add the water, salt and cannabutter to a saucepan and then place it on a burner that’s set to medium heat.
Bring the ingredients to a boil and then add all the flour at once to the mixture.
Once the ingredients form a large ball looking shape, you can remove it from the heat and give it 10 minutes or so to cool down.
After the 10 minutes has passed, start adding the eggs one at a time, stirring them in vigorously with the dough between each new addition.
Scoop all of the dough into a large freezer baggie, then use scissors to cut a hole that is approximately 1.2 inches wide at one corner of the plastic bag.
Though you did grease the pan, you’ll still want to line it with parchment paper to keep things from sticking together, so do that now before moving on to the next step.
Pipe the dough onto the parchment paper into the shape of a whole bunch of uncooked funnel cake fries which should be anywhere from 2-3 inches long. Try to keep them evenly spread out as you go along, and a standard size makes the dish a bit more aesthetically pleasing.
Bake the funnel cake fries in the oven for 7 minutes before flipping them over and then continuing to bake them for an additional 7 minutes; That or until the funnel fries turn into light golden morsels that are ready to be devoured.
Once they’re finished baking, transfer the funnel cake fries to a serving platter and then garnish them with a thick layer of icing sugar.
This dessert tastes the best when it’s freshly made and steaming hot, so it’s usually best to make them right when you need them.
