How to make pot cookies

Freezer Friendly Cannabis Peanut Butter Cookies

For hot medicated cookies anytime, freeze individual unbaked cookies on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet.  Once frozen, transfer to a plastic freezer container or bag.  Whenever you want a medicated treat, remove however many cookies you want at a time and bake according to recipe instructions, adding a minute or two to the baking time.

A note about the Dosing on this recipe!

This recipe will have about 25 mg THC per cookie  IF you made your marijuana butter from average cannabis (10% THC) and used 1/2 ounce of marijuana to make 1 cup butter.  To adjust the dosage for your personal needs and to reflect the strength of the marijuana you are cooking with and the amounts you used to make your butter, be sure to take my FREE 10 minute online Dosing Class that will teach you how to do it, or better yet, use my handy dosage calculator tools that do all the math for you (see below).


Making sure to decarboxylate your flower is the most important step in any weedy baking project — if you’re hoping to get high, that is. Whether you use a specialized device or an everyday sheet pan, baking crumbled weed in an oven set to 200°F will convert non-intoxicating THCA into the THC we all know and love so much. Skip this step and your cookies might leave you with some warm, fuzzy feelings, but they’re unlikely to produce the full-body high you’d expect from an edible.

The next most important step is to dose your edibles properly. Knowing how strong your cookies will be starts with knowing how strong your flower is, so make sure to check the lab results of your herb. Calculating the precise dose in each cookie will require some math, but air on the side of caution and choose a high-CBD flower for your cannabutter if you’re nervous about overdoing it.


On the topic of cannabutter, there are a few different ways to make it. Whether you go the traditional stovetop method or would prefer to simmer your butter in a slow cooker, there’s a route for everyone. To make your own, check out our comprehensive guide to cannabutter.

Oven temperature

To preserve the cannabinoids in your baked goods, try to keep the oven temperature relatively low. Keep the temperature at or below 350°F if you can and skip recipes that won’t work without a high cooking temperature. 

Strong flavors

You can add cannabutter to any recipe to make it infused, but to make it taste good, you’ll want to pair that weedy butter with some strong flavors. Gingerbread and other heavily spiced cookies can be strong as you like with almost no lingering flavor of weed. Chocolate is another favorite for its strong, earthy flavor that can actually complement herbal notes.  

What you’ll need

Making weed-infused cookies is as simple as swapping out all or part of the regular butter in a recipe with cannabutter. To make it even easier on yourself, use a boxed cookie mix. At a minimum, you will need: 


  • 1/2 cup cannabis infused butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter see note above
  • 1 egg large
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  • Beat the butter with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the brown sugar and white sugar well.
  • Lower mixer speed and beat in the peanut butter and the egg.
  • Mix in the dry ingredients until just combined.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for at least 3 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Use clean hands to shape the dough into 24 small balls. Place about 2 inches apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Flatten the cookies with a fork, pressing a crisscross pattern onto the surface.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes or until light brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 1 minute before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Is a cookie a cake? Not really, but cookies are just as delicious and this is one of my all time favourite recipes. It can take a lot of practice to get the taste and texture of these cookies perfect, as is the case when using any cookie recipe. Before you rush off to the kitchen you need to go and pick up the following ingredients:

  • Author: admin
  • Category: Cannabutter


  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of Cannabis butter
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups of chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of finely chopped nuts (optional, replace with more chocolate chips if you don’t like nuts)


Step 1 – Place your Cannabis butter into a bowl.

Step 2 – Grab another small bowl and combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. In the bowl that has your cannabis butter, add the white sugar, and vanilla and mix it.

Step 3 – Now add one egg, beat until it is fully mixed, add the other egg and repeat. Continue to mix as you slowly add the flour mixture from the small bowl.

Step 4 – When fully mixed stir in the chocolate chips and nut mixture. If your dough mix is too dry and hard then add a small amount of water and mix until slightly sticky.

Step 5 – Separate your dough mixture into five or six smaller balls of dough, and place them on a very lightly greased baking sheet. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Step 6 – Place the baking tray into the oven and let it bake for around 10-12 minutes, or until they look cooked! They should be a golden brown color.

Step 7 – Let you cookies fully cool, preferably on a wire rack. They are now ready to eat! The cannabis bud that you simmered in the saucepan can be left out to dry over a day or two and smoked, it won’t be a very strong anymore, but hell you don’t want to waste the bud even if it doesn’t get you too high.


Dosage: The cannabis butter will be a lot stronger than you might think, but as with all digested cannabis it can be a while before you feel the effects. Eat one of the cookies immediately, one half an hour later. Do not consume another cookie for at least an hour, to ensure that you are not too high. Before you consume these cookies please ensure that you have other things to eat if you get the munchies, otherwise you might be too tempted to eat your remaining Magic Cookies and this isn’t going to stop your munchies!

  1. These sound wonderful. I will definitely give these a try. Just what I was looking for. Most of the recipes I found were using butter based cannabutter. Thanks!
