Lemon Coconut Cannabis Cookies

Difficulty: Normal








Equipment & Ingredients

  • Equipment
  • cookie sheet
  • parchment paper
  • mixing bowl
  • spatula
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup unsalted cannabis butter softened to room temp

  • 3/4 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 tsp vanila extract
  • 1 tsp coconut extract
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • Lemon Glaze
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 sprinkling of shredded coconut


  • Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter for 1 minute on medium speed until completely smooth and creamy. Add the confectioners’ sugar, vanilla extract, coconut extract, and lemon zest and then beat on medium-high speed until combined. Scrape down the sides and up the bottom of the bowl and beat again as needed to combine. Add the lemon juice, salt, coconut, and flour and beat on medium speed until combined. The dough may not come together at first, but keep mixing until it does. The cookie dough will be thick.
  • Cover the cookie dough tightly and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes and up to 3 days.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Line large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
  • Roll the cookie dough into balls, about 1 Tablespoon of dough each, and place dough balls 2 inches apart on the baking sheets. If the cookie dough is too crumbly, keep rolling and working it with your hands. The warmth of your hands will help bring it together.
  • Bake the cookies until lightly browned around the bottom edges, about 14-15 minutes.
  • Allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet and then transfer to a wire rack. Make sure cookies are cool to the touch before dipping in icing.
  • Lemon Glaze
  • Whisk all of the glaze ingredients together in a medium bowl. If desired, add more confectioners’ sugar to thicken or more milk to thin out. Dip cookies in icing or drizzle on top. If desired, garnish with coconut, sprinkles, and/or lemon zest. If coated lightly, the icing will set after 2 hours.

Key Ingredients in These Easy Cookies

  1. Cannabis Butter: The stand-out ingredient in most weed cookie recipes, cannabis butter makes today’s lemon coconut cookies with exceptional flavour and a whipped shortbread-like texture.
  2. Confectioners’ Sugar: Use confectioners’ sugar in both the cookie dough and lemon glaze.
  3. Coconut Extract: We use shredded coconut in the cookie dough, and if you really want the coconut flavour to stand out, use coconut extract as well.
  4. Lemon Juice & Zest: For refreshing, tart flavour.
  5. Sweetened Shredded Coconut: Use sweetened shredded coconut because it’s moister than unsweetened, and that makes a big difference in the cookie’s flavour, moisture, and texture.
