Part 1: Cannabutter Recipe
Yield: 230 g
- 14 g Pure Sunfarms bud (your strain of choice)
- 300 g unsalted butter
- 400 mL water
- Preheat oven to 275°F.
- Chop the bud into small pea-sized pieces and spread evenly into 8” ceramic or glass baking pan.
- Bake undisturbed for 20 minutes, remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for 20 minutes.
- Combine the decarbed bud, unsalted butter, and water in a small/medium-size saucepan.
- Heat over medium heat until the butter is melted, stirring once or twice, do not let mixture boil. Once butter is melted, turn down heat to the lowest possible setting*.
- Cook at a very low simmer**, maintaining 200°F for 4 hours. Check the temperature periodically with an instant-read thermometer (stir briefly before taking temperature). Remove from heat and let mixture cool 15 minutes.
- Pour mixture slowly through a fine wire mesh sieve or several layers of cheesecloth into a tall container. Press solids to remove all liquid.
- Chill 3-4 hours or overnight. Mixture will separate into Cannabutter on top and cooking liquid below. Remove block of solidified Cannabutter, place in a medium-sized mixing bowl, discard the liquid.
- Place in a warm spot until Cannabutter is very soft. Using an electric beater, whip the butter for 2 minutes to disperse the THC evenly.
- Pack into a secure, labeled, airtight container.
- Keeps frozen up to six months.
*Google “heat diffuser” ideas for your cooktop if you are having trouble maintaining 200°F.
**Lazy bubbles will be just breaking the surface of the cooking liquid.
Part 2: Canna Cocoa Cookie Recipe
Yield: 50 cannabis cookies (~2 mg THC per cookie*)
- 200 g / 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 20 g / 1 tbsp + 1 tsp Cannabutter
- 135 g / ~2/3 cup white sugar
- 30 g / 1 oz dark chocolate, melted and cooled
- 1 large egg + 1 yolk (reserve egg white for glaze)
- 10 g / 2 tsp vanilla
- 340 g / 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 70 g / 3/4 cup cocoa powder
- 2.5 g / ½ tsp baking powder
- 2.5 g / ½ tsp salt
- Topping: 10 g / 2 tsp flaky Maldon or sea salt**
- Using a stand mixer or electric beaters, cream the butter and Cannabutter together until light and fluffy for 2-3 minutes.
- Beat in the cooled chocolate, egg, egg yolk, and vanilla until everything is well combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl several times.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
- Add dry ingredients to the butter mixture in thirds, on low, scraping down the sides of the bowl several times until all is well combined.
- Divide dough in half, pat each half into a flat disc about 2 cm thick, wrap well and chill at least one hour before rolling out.
- Preheat the oven to 325°F.
- Roll out one disc at a time on a lightly floured surface to a 28cm circle. Cut out as many cookies as possible, placing them 2 cm apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Lightly flour a cookie-cutter if you want to use one to help prevent sticking.
- Re-roll the scraps and continue cutting cookies .
- Whisk the reserved egg white with a teaspoon of water until foamy, lightly brush egg white evenly onto the tops of each cookie, sprinkle with a few flakes of salt.
- Bake one sheet at a time, on the middle rack of the oven for 12 minutes, remove and let cool on the pan for 5 minutes before transferring cookies to a wire rack until completely cool.
- Store canna cookies securely in a labeled airtight container, one week at room temperature and up to a month in the freezer.
* Without the testing information, this is just a guesstimate.
**Variation: top with crushed candy cane or sprinkles.
