Here’s a guide to making marijuana cookies and a couple of the best marijuana cookie recipes for Christmas.
How To Make Marijuana Butter
Before you start baking batches of marijuana cookies, you need to infuse marijuana into butter. The THC in marijuana binds to fats such as butter or oil, and marijuana butter is the perfect ingredient to add to pretty much any recipe for cookies or other baked goods.
You can use any marijuana strain you want and the edibles will mimic the effects. You’ll also need to decarboxylate your weed first- this involves putting it on an oven tray for around 30-45 minutes at 245ºF. Here’s a step-by-step guide for making a batch of marijuana butter.
- 7-10 grams of weed
- 1 cup of butter
- 1 cup of water
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 245ºF and cover a baking tray with parchment paper. Spread your buds of weed across the tray and spread them out so they’re not touching. Put the tray in the oven for 30-45 minutes, shaking occasionally. This activates the THC, ready for infusion into butter.
Step 2: Place a saucepan on medium heat and add your butter and water. Meanwhile, grind your decarboxylated weed. Once the butter melts, add your weed and reduce heat to around 160ºF – 180ºF.
Step 3: Give the weed butter around 2-3 hours to simmer while occasionally stirring. The THC will bind to fats in the butter. Once ready, take your pan away from the heat and get a clean glass jar and cheesecloth.
Step 4: Place a cheesecloth or strainer over your glass jar and strain the mixture through. This will separate the cannabis butter from any excess weed. Once it’s fully strained through, apply a lid to the container and put it in the fridge for it to harden.
Marijuana Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
If you want a simple and fun recipe, it’s hard to beat chocolate chip cookies. These cookies are easy to make and easy to customize- you can use fruit pieces or other fillings instead of chocolate chips if you’d like. Here’s how to make Marijuana Chocolate Chip Cookies.
- 1 cup of cannabis butter
- 3 cups of flour
- 3 cups of chocolate chips
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of white sugar
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoons of hot water
- ½ teaspoon of salt
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350ºF and cover a baking tray in parchment paper. Grab a couple of mixing bowls and whisk or hand blender.
Step 2: Add your cannabis butter, white sugar, brown sugar to a bowl and mix ingredients. Beat in your eggs and stir in vanilla extract until all ingredients are well-mixed. Dissolve your baking soda in a cup or bowl of hot water before adding it to the mixture and stir it in.
Step 3: Take another bowl and add your flour and salt. Mix these before adding to your main mixing bowl and stirring thoroughly. Add your chocolate chips together and stir to spread them out.
Step 4: Take large spoonfuls of your dough and place them on your baking tray until you have around 24 pieces evenly spread apart. Once you’ve used all your dough, place the baking tray in the oven for around 10 minutes.
Step 5: Wait for the edges of your cookies to become brown. Take the baking tray out of the oven and leave your cookies on the side to cool. Your Marijuana Chocolate Chip Cookies are now ready!
Marijuana Christmas Shortbread Cookies Recipe
Shortbread cookies are one of the greatest Christmas treats. They’re also perfect for infusing with marijuana. This recipe will give you a batch of delicious Christmas shortbread cookies- but be careful to only eat a small serving. Grab some Christmas cookie cutters and chocolate chips for extra enjoyment.
- ⅔ cup of cannabis butter
- 1 cup of flour
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
- ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
- ¼ cup of sugar
Step 1: Add your butter to a bowl and beat for around 5 minutes until it’s fluffy. Add your sugar and continue to beat for another couple of minutes. Add your vanilla extract and mix thoroughly.
Step 2: Whisk together flour and salt before adding to your mixing bowl. Blend the mixture at low speed while scraping the sides down. Wait until all ingredients are well-mixed and your dough sticks together firmly.
Step 3: Remove the dough from the bowl, wrap it in plastic, and put it in the refrigerator. Allow around an hour for it to become firm then take it out and roll it flat till it’s around a quarter-inch thick.
Step 4: Preheat your oven to 325ºF and use cookie cutters to make cookies out of your dough. This is a great opportunity to use Christmas-shaped cookie cutters such as stars, trees or reindeer shapes. You can also add fillings such as chocolate chips at this point.
Step 5: Let your cookie dough harden in the fridge for another 30 minutes or so before placing in the oven and baking for 13-15 minutes or until they become firm and golden. Take them out of the oven and leave them to cool. Your delicious Christmas shortbread cookies are now ready!
These recipes will give you some delicious marijuana cookies for Christmas, but be careful. Marijuana edibles take around 30-90 minutes to kick in, and when they do, the high can last for 4-12 hours. Try eating a small piece at first to gauge how strong they are and how much you can tolerate.
You can also get creative and try out new marijuana cookie recipes. Just make sure not to use too much cannabutter- even a small amount is enough for potent effects. If you want to buy weed, edibles or other marijuana products, you can order online from TopDispensary.ca.
