The 6-step marijuana cookie recipe

Step 1. Preheat your oven to 190 C.

Step 2. Take a small bowl, put there flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir all that and set aside.

Step 3. When both butter types are at room temperature and soft, take a large bowl and place them in it. After that, add sugar and fold until the creamy texture (sugar crystals form a uniform). You can do that using a mixer. In this case, it should be in a medium setting and fold about 2-3 minutes. It’ll be enough.

Step 4. Take the egg and vanilla extract. Beat in them with a whisk. Add in small handfuls of the dry flour mixture and fold all that gently. Don’t over-stir! It’ll result in the flour will taste gummy! The mixture doesn’t have to be perfectly uniform. On this step, you can add chocolate chips to the dough.

Step 5. Form the cookies. You can do that in 2 ways:

  • Gently form flattened balls;
  • Roll out the dough and cut out circle shapes.

Note, thin cookies will be more crispy while thicker ones will be more chewy and moist. After forming the cookies (you should get about 18 cookies), place them on an ungreased cookie/baking sheet. If you wish, you can cover the sheet with parchment.

Step 6. Bake until the weed cookies are golden brown on top (it takes for 8-9 minutes only). Remove from the oven. Let them cool on a sheet for around 2 minutes. After that, place the edibles on a wire cooling rack.
