Meet Fresh Baked

Fresh Baked is our new video series where we hangout, get baked and create any number of things! This week’s project was a delicious, gluten free, lemon-glazed cookie made with homemade canna-butter. Recipe & video below...

Bliss drops were the edible of choice for this springtime bake! A euphoric blend of three plant medicines and cannabis to promote extroverted happiness. Each Bliss Drop contains 5mg THC + 5mg CBD

Future Fresh Baked projects will include cannabis libations, baking and cooking recipes, DIY craft projects and more!

Gluten Free, Lemon-Glazed Cookies with CannaButter

CannaButter Ingredients
  • 1 cup of butter
  • 1 cup (7-10 grams) of ground cannabis

    The essential (and often missed) first step: Decarboxylating the Cannabis

    Before making your CannaButter, you should decarboxylate, or “decarb”, the cannabis flower you’re working with. Skipping this step will result in a weak or inactive finished product. Here’s why: Cannabis buds produce a non-intoxicating acidic cannabinoid called THCA. When we smoke or vaporize cannabis, the heat converts THCA into THC, the molecule that delivers euphoric effects. If preparing CBD edibles, this same process should be applied. Some recipes may instruct you to decarb cannabis in the hot butter directly, but the less time you spend soaking the buds, the better your infused butter is going to taste. For this reason, we recommend decarbing in the oven first.

    Decarbing the Cannabis
    1) Preheat your oven to 245ºF. Place cannabis buds on a non-stick, oven-safe tray. Cover the tray with parchment paper to prevent sticking. Insert the tray into the oven and set a timer for 30-40 minutes. Older, drier cannabis may require less time. (Tip: you can also set your oven to 300ºF and heat for 10 to 18 minutes, although low-and-slow is the recommended approach when decarbing to better preserve the cannabinoids.) Every 10 minutes, gently mix the buds with a light shake of the tray to expose the surface area of the buds equally.

    2) Grind. Grind the decarboxylated cannabis coarsely with a hand grinder.

    3) Melt the butter. Add 1 cup of water and 1 cup of butter into a stock pot or saucepan. Simmer on low and let the butter melt. Adding water helps to regulate the temperature and prevents the butter from scorching.

    4) Add the cannabis. As the butter begins to melt, add in your coarsely ground cannabis product.

    5) Simmer. Maintain low heat (ideally above 160ºF but never exceeding 200ºF) and let the mixture simmer for 2 to 3 hours, stirring occasionally. The mixture should never come to a full boil.

    6) Strain the cannabutter. Set a funnel on top of a jar and line it with cheesecloth. Once the butter has cooled off, pour it over the cheesecloth funnel and allow it to strain freely. (Tip: Squeezing the cheesecloth may push more bad-tasting plant material through).

    7) Refrigerate the jar of butter. If excess water forms at the bottom of the jar, you can remove the solid butter with a knife and drain the water out. (The butter will need to refrigerate for about an hour before removing the water.)

    Canna Butter
    Cookie Ingredients
    • 2 cups white sugar
    • 2 cups brown sugar
    • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 2 cups Cannabis Butter (recipe below)

    1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

    2) To make cookie dough combine flour, salt, and baking powder.

    3) In a separate bowl combine white and brown sugar, cannabis butter, vanilla and eggs.

    4) Slowly add flour mix to fully-mixed wet ingredients and mix until well combined and dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.

    5) Line baking sheets with parchment paper and roll cookie dough in smallish size balls.

    6) Bake the cookies until slightly browned, about 15 minutes. Remove the parchment paper with the cookies from the tray to a cooling rack and cool completely, about 1 hour.

    7) Whilst cookies are baking make the Lemon Glaze Icing (see below.)

    8) Once the cookies have completely cooled, ice them with lemon Icing.

    Lemon Icing Ingredients
    • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
    • 6 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 2 tablespoons cannabis butter
    • Zest from lemon
    Icing Instructions:
    1) Literally just mix all the above ingredients together until smooth. Spoon the icing onto cooled cookies or spread evenly with the back of a spoon. Let stand on a cooling rack until the glaze is set, about 1 hour. Zest with your desired amount of lemons.
    Enjoy responsibly!
