    I dont do a real find grind with the abv so I didn't have any problem with the cheesecloth. Fuck, 8 cookies? I ate a thicker cookie yesterday, I shouldn't have eaten the entire thing. I was blitzed out of my skull. I won't ever touch more than a whole one. I dont want to see what's beyond that.....

    Yeah way overkill. I literally couldnt open my eyes. I think 2 were equal to the potency I was looking for but they tasted so damm good I couldn't stop. I haven't had home made cookies in a decade and am a novice at edibles too. Never again but good to know the boundary. I think upping to 25/30 grams is ideal though, just eat one though.

    I just followed SLJ's motherfuckin' instructions to the letter! 1 oz of ABV to 4 sticks of butter! ;) That shit is chilling right now! Last time I used much less and didn't cook it as long and it still worked very well (just a tiny bit weak). I have a plan to make some peanut butter dark chocolate brownies! The last batch 1 large or 1.5 large cookies would be really stony! This batch one big cookie should medicate you for 6 hours...

    my grind is very fine. when you use a fine grind, you want to fold over the cheesecloth multiple times so nothing can fall through

    i.e. i'll use an entire package of cheesecloth - 3 feet - folded over with a fine grind.

    coffee fliter works "ok" drains REALLY slowly, better to use a pantyhose

    ...or a very motherfucking clean old cotton tee shirt or even old bed sheet if the thread count is high enough. I've even used old cut up flannel receiving blankets (you know - for wrapping motherfucking infant spawn), they work great and usually don't bust.

    and they are compostable :)

    I'm probably going to choose one of these recipes once I get enough abv. Thanks for all the tips and recipes! My aunt just had a hip replacement and she has trouble sleeping after a day of work, I'm probably gonna give most the cookies or brownies and hopefully it helps her sleep after a long day of work =D

    Finally got around to making my motherfucking cannabutter last weekend. As discussed before, I had a quart sized mason jar full of ABV from regs. I put in 3 sticks of butter to that quart of ABV and let it cook in the crockpot on low (with water) for about 4 hours. Ended up with about 2/3 c. of very green cannabutter. Since it was from regs, I also added a 1/2 oz. tin full of kief from the same regs when making the brownies (using a motherfucking mix.....sorry herbgirl!). While I was taking them from the pan, I tasted a piece that had broken off....very strong herb taste. Ate half of a small one and could definitely feel the effects. Ate the other half before bed and was a bit higher than I like. :o It's been a while since I've done edibles so that "rushing" effect was not so pleasant. I fell asleep at that point and slept like a baby. All in all, a good motherfucking batch. ;) Now I've just got to figure out what the motherfucking dosage is. :p

    Okay so I baked up TWO pans of Peanut Butter Ecstasy Brownies, but sadly they have been very HARD to cut. The inside is nice and CHEWY :D and they are LOADED with butter. Just really hard to cut...I let them cool over night and I think that is the problem...:o

    Post more results later gators! :peace:

    nice, i've been thinking butter cookies would be a good choice for my next batch.
    I almost have enough saved up, maybe a couple weeks and i'll be good.

    EDIT:

    actually, you just did choc chip with no chips? i'm gonna do a recipe that's made for a high amount of butter. maybe something like the butter cookies that come in the tin.

    Sam Jackson totally forgot to tell you that when flip the cannabutter out of the container, there is a goopy "peanut butter" looking substance on the bottom of the butter palet. you can discard that layer by wiping it off with a papertowel

    you don't have to do this, it won't hurt you

    OK, so I finally make my motherfucking butter and am a bit confused. I used a crock pot and cooked it on HI for 3.5 hours. Strained it and chilled it overnight and only a very thin film of motherfucking butter came to the top. I skimmed it and strained the liquid for any retirements but only got about 3 tbs of motherfucking butter out of the 1 stick of butter I started with. Is this normal or did I dump the motherfucking liquid too soon. I was thinking that if I put in a stick I would get a motherfucking stick back.

    Ragtop, it's usually a good idea to put twice as much motherfucking butter into the crock pot as you will be needing. A lot gets absorbed into the motherfucking herb while you are "cooking" it. Then, you really need to give that soaked herb a big motherfucking squeeze in some cheesecloth (or something similar) to get as much of that motherfucking butter out as you can when you are taking it out of your liquid. I usually use two to three sticks of butter when doing this. Also, you might want to lower your temp next time you make this. Higher temps will lower the motherfucking strength of your cannabutter.

    JDS, those look like some tasty motherfucking cookies you made there. And while your canna butter looks pretty green, you should have motherfucking seen mine. It was so motherfucking green it looked olive. Half of one of those brownies I made will put you in motherfucking orbit.

    recipe called for 2/3's cup motha fuckin shortening and i subbed in 1 full cup (2 sticks) of butter. A little extra motha fuckin butter never hurts :) Mmmmm mmm bitch, They are amazing!!!!

    When i melted the butter in the microwave it turned into a perfect dark super green. I love this Mother Fuckin recipe!!!

    AINT YOU EVER SEEN MY MOOOVVVIIIEEESSS? JUICE? THAT WAS A GOOD ONE! DEEP BLUE SEA? A SHARK ATE ME, A FUCKING SHARK ATE ME!!!!

    yeah, i've spiked in extra butter before too, with good results. But i wanna try a recipe that's just high in butter to begin with. I think adding extra butter to a recipe makes the cookies come out a little different. I can be a little bit of a cooking snob, trying to class up my medical baking.

    rabble, you are correct, extra butter will change the character of the cookie. you can play with it up to a point and still end up with an edible final result. i will see if i can track down a high butter cookie recipe.

    i wouldn't increase any more than about 33% more than the recipe calls for. even that may be pushing it depending upon how large the recipe yield is. to stay pretty safe, i say no more than 25% more. it will still change your result but not to the point of inedibility. i hope. :uhoh:

    but keep in mind, this motherfucking cannabutter you are cooking with has had the water removed. it is essentially pure butterfat, or clarified butter. water makes up about 15% of american butter. It functions, in baking with butter at least, to create steam which forces the dough to rise, an asset that a lot of cookies need because they have no other leavening. too little water may leave the cookies flatter than they would be otherwise. this may actually be desirable because it will also make them more chewy. take from that what you will, but before you go all balls out with the butter in the cookie, you may want to add a bit of water back to the motherfucking cannabutter before you use it in the recipe.

    also, if you are planning on baking with your motherfucking cannabutter you should use unsalted butter so it doesn't throw off the salt ratio in your recipes.

    i experienced this lack of water first hand when i made the reeces brownies i just wrote about. i used a method of infusion which cooked off some of the water. they were still very good, but i may add back some water next time (maybe 1t per stick?) to prevent the fat bubbling up through the batter while it cooks.

    see all this science and shit? and see how nice it is to be able to bake from scratch and manipulate the recipe to your desire?

    Ya when I say a motha fuckin cup instead of 2/3's cup the recipe called for, I really probably mean slightly less than a cup because im sure you lose a small amount of butter mass with the boiling process (water?). So that should put me right at about 25% higher butter than motha fuckin recipe. I love choc chip cookies but I really am starting to love the taste of this motha fuckin cannabutter (much much more than the cannaoil in the brownies) Im on a health kick so I figured if im adding extra butter I better leave out the choc chips since they are just chocolate and not "special chocolate" As it turns out I think I like them sans chips better :)

    Also, I believe 24g's of motha fuckin ABV, into the 2 sticks, into 24 cookies is the PERFECT strength for me. I cookie is the perfect motha fuckin dose :)

    I just started some butter on my grill and am not sure how much gas I have left, does anyone know the minimum amount of time it would take for the butter to absorb the goodies in case I run out of gas? Inside cooking isnt an option.

    Thanks

    Ran out an hour in but thankfully I'm within minutes of a propane exchange and was back up in 10 minutes. I'm still curious what the minimum time would be without sacrificing potency.

    Finally saved up enough ABV, spiked with some wand hash too.
    Did about 22 hours in the crock pot, butter came out even greener than prior batches. Even with like 4 times remelting with water to get all water soluble nastiness out.

    Cookies came out pretty good, i thought they were pretty tasty butter cookies, with a light cannabis flavor. I think they worked pretty well, it's hard to say for me, I had a number of drinks last night too. My friend said everything was awesome until there was too much spinning, and then she got sick. She's still feeling some effects today. Also, her getting sick harshed my mellow. It was right as I was going to bed that I noticed feeling really amazing. Requires more testing of this batch.

    I did add some extra water, was a little dry, probably from the butter process and getting rid of that moisture content.

    I don't have a scale but i used about a quarter cup of abv with a stick and a half of butter. I used Trader Joe's Truffle Brownie mix to make cookies and they are awesome!! In fact, it's taking a fair amount of self restraint not to eat them all. One cookie is a decent dose and two is all you really need. (Each cookie was a tablespoon of dough.) Brought some on a recent camping trip and it was the bomb.

    followed these instructions almost as stated. i used a little less weed, because the cookies are for an amusment park during a work function - so i don't want to overdo it.

    the recipe did not call for much butter so i have a lot left over (it was also a small batch of cookies, as i am the only one eating them) it took closer to 2 hours for them to kick in but i am feeling very good. not too high that i would turn down a joint, though. tomorrow is going to be awesome!!

    thanks everyone for the comments i would not have tried out this without all the positive comments!

    Hi all, I tried to make my butter yesterday, I used like 12g of ABV and 20g of butter but the consistency of the butter layer seems too thin.
