Canadian Bud Butter Tarts - Cooking with Cannabis - Edibles Magazine - Cannabis Infused Recipes

For the Pastry: 

1½ cups all-purpose flour 

¼ teaspoon salt 

¼ cup cold cannabis butter, cubed 

¼ cup, cold cannabis coconut oil, cubed, or substitute more canna-butter 

1 large egg yolk 

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 

Filtered ice water 

For the Filling: 

½ cup packed light brown sugar 

½ cup corn or brine rice syrup 

1 large, room-temperature egg 

2 tablespoons very soft butter 

1 teaspoon vanilla extract 

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice 

Pinch of kosher salt 

⅓ cup currants, sultana raisins, chopped walnuts or pecan halves

Make the Pastry: 

In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt. Use a pastry blender to cut in the canna butter and infused coconut oil until the mixture is in very fine crumbs. In a 1-cup measuring cup, use a small whisk or fork to combine the egg yolk, lemon juice and enough ice water to come to ⅓ cup. Gradually drizzle over the flour mixture, stirring briskly with a fork until the pastry holds together. You may need to add a little more ice water to gather up the last of the dry bits. Press into a disc, and wrap and chill until firm. Let stand at room temperature to soften a little before rolling. 

Make the Filling: 

Preheat the oven to 450°. In a medium bowl, mix together the sugar, syrup, egg, butter, vanilla, lemon juice and salt until smooth. On a floured surface, roll out pastry to a ⅛-inch thickness. Using a 4-inch round cookie cutter, cut out 12 circles, rerolling scraps if necessary. Fit into muffin cups. Divide the currants among the pastry shells. Spoon the filling over the currants until three-quarters full. Bake in the bottom third of the oven for about 12 minutes, or until filling is puffed and bubbly and pastry is golden. Let stand on a rack for a minute; immediately run a metal spatula around the tarts to loosen. Carefully slide the spatula under the tarts and lift out to cool on a rack. The baker gets to eat all the tarts that break in transit, or give them as a reward to favourite people. 5. You can freeze them for a month, or store them in the fridge for up to a week. Warm the canna tarts up to serve and savor.
