These are the best Chocolate Chip Cookies you will ever make. As a bonus, we've infused it with CBD Full Spectrum distillate for ultimate relaxation. This recipe yields about 20 cookies with 80mg of Full Spectrum CBD in each cookie. You can always adjust the amount of CBD distillate for a higher or lower dose.
First, we have to liquefy the CBD Distillate
You're going to mix the CBD Distillate with Shortening and then microwave it for 10 seconds or until the shortening is melted (Do not overcook). Take the mixture out of the microwave and blend until the mixture is thoroughly combined. Next, please place it in the refrigerator for 10 minutes or until the shorting becomes solid again. We do this to ensure that the CBD Distillate is distributed evenly throughout each cookie. While you wait for the shorting to set up, you can start preparing the dry ingredients mixture.
Now preheat the oven to 350 Fํ
Sift together your all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt, then set aside.
Sift the brown sugar into a mixing bowl to break up any lumps. Combine your sifted brown sugar and white sugar. Mix well and set aside.
In a mixer (or by hand in a bowl), mix butter, cream cheese, and the delta 8 infused shortening you made earlier. Be careful not to overmix. Once the ingredients are combined, you can stop. Overmixing can lead to a flat cookie.
Add your sugar mixture and whisk until blended. Again, make sure you do not over mix the ingredients.
Add your egg and vanilla extract to your mixture. Mix all the ingredients until smooth. Tip: stop midway and scape the sides of your bowl, ensuring even distribution of the CBD Distillate as well as all your other ingredients.
Now it's time to add your dry ingredients, mix it well, making sure you don't over mix. Once mixed, you can add your chocolate chips. Gently fold in your chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
Portion cookie dough into small balls. Weigh each ball to 37 grams (If you don't have a gram scale, you can eyeball the dough. This is not recommended, but it's possible).
Place your evenly portioned cookie balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Tip: make the cookie balls are not too close together as they will expand while getting baked. Four rows of cookie balls, each row containing three cookie balls, is a good amount when using a standard baking sheet. (See picture below)
Flatten the cookie dough by placing another baking tray on top, then apply pressure with both hands until the balls become flat. (See picture below)
Put the cookies in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, turning the tray 180 degrees halfway through the cooking process.
Take the cookies out of the oven, rest them for 10 minutes, and there you have it! Soft, chewy, and loaded with chocolate chips. This is the best Delta 8 Chocolate Chip Cookie you have ever eaten. Actually, this will be the best chocolate chip cookie you have ever eaten. The addition of CBD Distillate is just a bonus!
