Why Make Peanut Butter Weed Cookies?

Peanut butter weed cookies are cannabis-infused snacks that feature the creamy, sweet taste of peanut butter to complement weed’s wellness attributes. The dreamy experience of weed becomes an experience of delicious decadence and fun, and its potency is easily regulated for any user’s needs.

These products also offer comfort and discretion, as cookies can be easy to ingest without raising suspicion. Being that weed presents wellness advantages, consumers experience a newfound sense of self-care as they consume edibles.

The idea that an activity so easy and pleasant that almost everyone does it can create joy shows just how much we stand to improve our own health based on what we already know. Creative directions in self-care, therefore, are not so much a challenge as an opportunity. By valuing our bodies and minds more, we can reduce suffering and live our best lives.

From journaling to making yoga studio reservations, we can harness our culture of self-care to improve our wellbeing with practices that actually work. Cookies comprise only the simplest ingredients, but they’re such a prevalent and pleasurable part of our lives that it’s easy to underestimate their power.

That’s why it’s less surprising that, as self-care continues to develop, cooking and eating are becoming important healing tools as well.

Peanut Butter Weed Cookies Recipe

Before diving into this creamy recipe, you’ll need to decarboxylate your flower to create cannabutter. You can do this with any type of cannabis strain, each with its own properties.

If you don’t want a high, use some of our CBD flower, like the tasty Lifter strain, a citrusy Sativa with uplifting effects. Or, if you want a mild high, check out the fancy delta-8 THC Bubba Kush, a calming indica with chocolate and coffee hints. Once you choose your favorite strain, infuse butter with it.

To make this, read our detailed guide on how to make CBD butter. After you’ve prepared this delicious infusion, you can start gathering the ingredients for your peanut butter weed cookies recipe.

Servings: 24 cookies Cuisine: Dessert Prep time: 5 minutes Cooking time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup peanut butter (use crunchy peanut butter for a tastier result)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  5. Roll the peanut butter weed cookie dough into balls and put them on a baking sheet. Use a fork to make a crisscross pattern, pressing on top of the dough.

  7. Remove from the oven and let cool. Now, enjoy the blissful ride these treats will give you.

How Do You Store Peanut Butter Weed Cookies?

It is important to store the peanut butter weed cookies well; otherwise, they can go bad. Once they have completely cooled on a wire rack, put them in an airtight container (you can separate the cookies with pieces of parchment paper so they don’t stick to one another).

Store them in a cool, dark pantry or cupboard, out of direct sunlight and heat, which can destroy the THC and alter the taste of the cookies. For long-term storage, peanut butter weed cookies can also be frozen. First, wrap each cookie individually in plastic wrap, then place them in a freezer-safe bag or container.

This will keep them fresh for up to three months. Let a cookie thaw at room temperature for a few hours, or heat it up in a low oven to revive that buttery-peanutty taste and texture. Store them in clearly marked containers with the contents labelled and the date they were made.

While you are at it, store your cookies out of reach—not just from looming toddler hands but also from any furry friends who might find themselves considerably higher than their normal morning walk once one of these cookies has found its way into their canine stomach. Don’t forget to mark them ‘do not share with children’ and ‘contain cannabis’ if you don’t want your new marijuana-infused treats falling into the wrong hands later.

Peanut Butter Weed Cookies Recipe: Frequently Asked Questions

Why Do You Criss Cross Peanut Butter Cookies?

The criss-cross pattern on peanut butter cookies is not just decorative but functional. Peanut butter is naturally thicker than most ingredients, leading to denser cookie dough. Pressing the dough with a fork not only follows tradition but also flattens the cookies, ensuring they bake evenly. This prevents the edges from burning before the center is fully cooked, which can happen if the dough is left in thicker balls on the baking sheet. The pattern helps heat penetrate more effectively, ensuring a thorough bake.

Why Are Peanut Butter Cookies Dry?

The most important potential reason that peanut butter cookies can come out dry is the proportion of ingredients used in the cookie. Too much flour or not enough fat (from either the peanut butter or some additional butter) will result in dry cookies. An alternative reason is overbaking, which can make cookies dry quite quickly especially with a drier dough. Make sure your dry ingredients are not overmeasured; Add no more than two additional minutes of baking time. Go for a cookie made with creamy peanut butter rather than chunky, or natural, peanut butter, which can have less fat.
