Miso Butter Cookies
These miso butter cookies have a rich, savory, buttery flavor - the miso really adds an richness to the cookie.
- 2 tablespoons miso paste
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- raw sugar for garnish (optional)
Beat Miso, butter, and sugar in a bowl until creamy. Add egg and beat some more. Add flour and baking soda, and mix well.
Cut the dough in half and shape into a 2" round log, using flour if the dough is sticking (or cool it in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm). Wrap with plastic and refrigerate for a couple of hours.
Slice the cookie dough into 1/2" thick rounds. Place cookies on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with raw sugar if you prefer. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.
