Miso Hungry!

The other day I listened to some food porn on NPR, and the ladies were discussing treats for adults. Treats with umami so I immediately started paying attention. I like miso soup just like most people, but I hadn't thought of adding miso to my baking. But I'm open minded so I purchased some aka (red) miso and some shiro (light yellow) miso.

Have to make some miso mayo soon!

Last night I made the Miso Chocolate Chip Cookies from Hapa Nom Nom with the aka miso (I bookmarked more of her recipes to try!) and we chomped on them while watching A Christmas Story. Emi had mixed opinions initially. Aubri and Daddy loved them (as I knew they would) and David seemed to like them too. He ate two of them. They were especially good with a cold glass of milk.

Today I made some shiro miso buttercream frosting to go with the cookies. That combination was good but a little salty because I used salted butter. I would love to try it with unsalted butter and lemon verbena next time.

I also experimented with Miso Macadamia Blondies and these bars are awesome!

Macadamia nuts, miso paste, brown sugar, vanilla eggs and baking soda.

These are a little bit of heaven!
