Miso can be used not only for Savory dishes but also for cookies. As weird as it may sound, these miso cookies have quite a distinct taste and not overly sweet.
Super easy to make and you can make batches of cookie dough and freeze them. Whenever you want fresh cookies you can take out a roll, cut and bake.
