  • 9x13 inch baking pan
  • Parchment paper
  • Mixing bowls
  • Electric mixer or whisk
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Fine mesh strainer
  • Spatula
  • Zester
  • Knife


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup cannabis-infused butter (cannabutter), chilled and cut into cubes
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 3-4 lemons)
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest (from 1-2 lemons)
  • Powdered sugar for dusting (optional)


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a 9x13 inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving some overhang on the sides for easy removal
  • In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of flour, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and 1/4 tsp salt. Add the chilled cannabis-infused butter cubes and mix with an electric mixer or pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs
  • Press the crust mixture firmly into the prepared baking pan to form an even layer. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until lightly golden brown
  • While the crust is baking, prepare the lemon filling. In a mixing bowl, whisk together 1 cup granulated sugar, 2 tbsp flour, and 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • Add the eggs, lemon juice, and lemon zest to the sugar mixture. Whisk until smooth and well combined
  • Pour the lemon filling over the pre-baked crust, spreading it evenly. Return the pan to the oven and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes, or until the filling is set and no longer jiggly in the center
  • Remove the lemon bars from the oven and let them cool completely in the pan on a wire rack
  • Once cooled, use the parchment paper overhang to lift the lemon bars out of the pan. Transfer to a cutting board and cut into 16 squares
  • Dust the tops with powdered sugar before serving, if desired


  • Adjust the amount of cannabis-infused butter based on your desired potency and tolerance.
  • These lemon bars should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator and consumed within a week.
  • Be sure to clearly label the lemon bars to prevent accidental consumption, especially by children or pets.
  • Always start with a small portion to gauge the effects and avoid overconsumption.
