Freezer Friendly Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies
One of the best things about this recipe is that it is freezable! I like to portion out individual cookies, place on a baking sheet and freeze solid before transferring to plastic freezer storage bags.
Anytime you are ready for a medicated treat, simply remove the number of cookies you like, and bake up hot fresh medicated cookies anytime you want them.
From ready to make Cannabis Chocolate Chip cookies also make terrific DIY gifts for the edibles lovers in your life.
A note about the Dosing on this recipe!
This recipe will have about 10 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, either up or down, 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. Better yet, use my handy dosage calculator tools that do all the math for you (see below).
Classic Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup cannabis infused butter
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar I like dark but either will work
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs large
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped nuts optional
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
- Mix together flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
- Beat butter and cannabutter with an electric mixer until soft and fluffy. Add sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla and beat until well combined and creamy.
- Beat in eggs, one at a time, until well combined.
- Gradually beat in flour mixture until just combined, do not overbeat.
- Stir in chocolate chips and nuts, if using.
- Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets and bake for about 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
Great choc chip cookie! Thanks for the recipe!
One note: ingredients list baking powder; instructions, baking soda. Could cause confusion for those new to baking. 🙂
Thank you so much for letting me know. Let me check my original recipe notes and fix it. (It is so hard to proofread my own work).
Are you using normal butter and cannabis butter in this recipe?
Yes, but adjust the ratios to get the dosage you need.
actually not sure how much that would be
Well then the first step is to figure that out. Watch this video and take the free and/or $5.00 dosing course it recommends.
In your chocolate chip cookie recipe it’s his half a cup of cannabis infused butter And half a cup of butter I’m a bit confused do you put ordinary butter and and cannabis butter
Yes that is correct, but feel free to adjust the ratios of each in order to get a dose that works for your needs.
I used one cup of cannabutter and came outdtrong and delicious. Thanks for the recipe. First time ever growing harvesting and now cooking. Been waiting 50 years for this. This will be my go to recipe for sure.
Awesome. Thanks for the kind words. Better late than never!
Did you also put the regular butter in slso
Yes you beat the butter and cannabutter together. My bad, I just updated the instructions, thank you for letting me know.
I messed up the recipe, put the eggs and vanilla extract in after mixing in the flour lol. They still came out pretty good.
Good to know. It should still work, but doing it the way the recipe is written should give a little better texture to the finished cookie, at least in theory. I am happy to know it still worked out!
can you use more cannabutter and still the normal amount of regular butter
Not by much, no. Combine the butter and cannabutter content in the recipe, combine them, and that is how much total butter you should use. Regardless of whether or not it is infused.
Instead of half canna and half regular, just use 1 cup of cannabutter.
You could, but most people do not need or want that strong a dose, that is why I tell everyone to adjust for their needs.
Was wondering how to store baked cookies? Is freezing an ok option? Thanks for this! I was making caramels for an edible, but it’s just gotten to dang sweet – happy with cookies!
You can but they can get soggy if not stored properly. A better option is to freeze the cookie dough unbaked (form cookies, put on a baking sheet and freeze, then move to a storage bag when frozen. Bake from the frozen state however many you need. Fresh hot cookies!
In the notes about dosing it says about10mg per cookie using 1/2oz cannabis to 1 cup butter. But in the ingredients list it calls for 1/2 C cannabis butter and 1/2 C regular butter. So is it 1/2oz cannabis to 1/2C butter or is the full cup of butter supposed to be cannabis? Sorry, I’m new to cannabis baking and want to make sure I get it right.
No, it means you made THE ENTIRE batch of butter with 1/2 ounce (14 grams) to one cup, but you are only using 1/2 of that batch in the cookies (you can make whatever you like with the other half, or if you need a stronger dose use more cannabutter and less regular butter). Everyone is different on dosing and if your cannabis is a different % of THC that will change the dose too, that’s what I say take my free dosing class or get the calculators to make it right for your needs and what you are cooking with.
If I freeze some of the uncooked dough how long is it good in the freezer for? How do you recommend cooking them from frozen? I was thinking of freezing them and once they get solid vacuum sealing them.
They will easily last 3 or 4 months even without vacuum sealing (just wrap well, but vacuum sealing is good too). Just bake from a frozen state in a preheated oven. You might need an extra minute or two of bake time is all.
Thanks so much. Trying to make them tonight. Do you leave the butter out to soften?
It can make it easier, yes. And if you store butter in the freezer like I do, then definitely yes!
I made these cookies and they were a hit! Thank you.
Happy to hear they were a hit!
My last batch I think I must have over beat because they didn’t spread baking like the time before and the texture was different. Any advice on how to not over beat?
Just don’t do it. Only mix until ingredients are incorporated. Sorry this batch did not work out as well as the first time.
My recent batch was good and I recently realized I do your gummies too. Do you do peanut butter cookies as well?
I do indeed. See this link
Wouldn’t the high temp destroy some of the thc?
Absolutely not. But this is an excellent example of just some of the bad information about cannabis cooking that proliferates the internet and why you should always make sure your sources know what they are talking about (and this misinformation is only getting worse in the age of AI). Here’s why not
Made this, cooked 6 and froze the cookie dough for the rest of the batch. Will cook them as I need them, they taste great!
YAY! Thanks for sharing!
Can I store dough to make later
Absolutely. In fact I talk about freezing the dough on this page!
Yay! Thank you, that’s what we like to hear.
