Not Horrible Marijuana Butter Cookies

My doctor would like me to smoke less and eat more pot, if possible. Marijuana butter is easy enough to make, put a pound of butter in a pot of water with some marijuana and simmer it for a couple of hours. Remove from heat and let butter rise to surface. Put in fridge over night so butter hardens and can be removed as a solid and any residue scraped off the bottom. The problem is it has an extremely strong obnoxious flavour that nothing covers up. I've tried adding this butter to several kinds of recipes and nothing works. I just get horrible tasting vanilla or chocolate chip or peanut butter cookies or brownies. Fern asked me to make some cookies for him so I decided to try making a recipe just for marijuana butter. I had 3/4 cup butter so used it all. Preheat oven to 325F.

Marijuana Butter Cookies

3/4 cup marijuana butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 2/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

Cream butter then sugar together. I kept adding sugar till the horrible taste was mostly hidden. A little more or less should be fine. Add egg. Add most of the flour and baking powder. This should make a dough that can be formed into balls, flattened and placed on cookie sheet. If it's sticky add more of the flour but not so much it crumbles. If it's too dry, add a tablespoon of milk. Form balls, flatten and place on cookie sheet. Bake 12-20 minutes till browned. I have ceramic cookie sheets that take 20 minutes to bake cookies. They could have baked another 2 minutes because they fell slightly in the middle but the texture was good.

It took me till after dinner to try one. Surprisingly it wasn't bad. It wasn't good. Not a flavour you look for. But edible, almost enjoyable. If you have to use medical marijuana, this is a good way to treat and consume it.
