Infuse With Fat First
Always decarboxylate cannabis and infuse with fat or oil first. The cannabinoids are soluble in fat but they not soluble in sugar. Also, it is easier to disperse cannabinoids throughout the dough for consistent dosage across the entire batch.
Honey is Delicate – Turn Down the Heat
To make honey chocolate chip cookies, first preheat oven to 325°F. When you bake with honey, it is important to use a lower your temperature than you normally would or you will burn your cookies.
Mixing The Dough
Before you start making dough for honey chocolate chip cookies, make sure all of your ingredients are room temperature. Cream together honey and cannabutter. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until creamy. Put all of your dry ingredients in a separate bowl and sift together before adding to the wet mixture. Mix until incorporated. Do not over mix. Lastly, stir in chocolate chips.
Get Ready For The Oven
Use an ice cream scoop to evenly divide honey chocolate chip cookie batter into 12 equal portions. Space out evenly on 2 parchment lined baking sheets. Do not flatten the dough. Give each cookie lots of room in case the dough spreads out during baking. While the first batch is baking, you can put the other cookie sheet in the fridge to prevent the dough from getting runny.
Bake at 325°F
Bake at 325° F for 22 minutes on the middle rack. Remove from oven and set cookie sheet on cooling rack. Honey chocolate chip cookies will look like they are not done when you take them out of the oven after 22 minutes. They will continue to bake once they come out of the oven. If you take the cookies out when they look done, they will more than likely be burnt. Let them cool completely on the cookie sheet. Bake only one cookie sheet at a time.
Other Helpful Hints
If you substitute honey for sugar in a recipe, you need to reduce the temperature by 25° F to 50° F and you need to account for the extra moisture content. It is best to follow recipes that specifically use honey because of the adjustment needed for temperature, moisture and baking time.
Over mixing cookie dough can result in dense, tough cookies. It can cause honey chocolate chip cookies to run apart while baking, resulting in unattractive, partly burnt cookies.
Always be aware of how much THC you are ingesting. You will enjoy using cannabis if you don’t have a bad trip from eating too much. Unfortunately, eating too much THC can be an unpleasant experience. Likewise, make sure that your edibles are always safely out of reach of children and pets. Cannabis can be deadly for them.
These light cookies have a scrumptious sweetness that makes you crave more. Although they require a bit more attention than other cookies, they are well worth the effort. In essence, lower temperatures and less mixing are necessary.
- 1/2 cup canna butter or canna margarine, softened
- 1/2 cup creamed honey
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/4 cup (minus 2 tbsp) all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325° F.
Cream together canna butter and honey until smooth. Add egg and vanilla and beat until fluffy.
Measure flour, salt and baking soda into a separate bowl. Mix thoroughly. Stir into creamed mixture until blended. Do not over mix.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Using an ice cream scoop, divide batter into 12 equal portions. Space equally apart on 2 parchment lined baking sheets.
Bake each sheet separately at 325° F for 22 minutes. Cookies may appear under baked at this point. However, they will continue to cook while cooling off. Allow the cookies to cool completely on the baking sheet, approximately 20 minutes.
Check For Doneness
If you look in the oven and your cookies look like they are done, you left them in the oven too long. Unless you enjoy the taste of burnt cookies, you should take them out when they look slightly underdone.
