Chef Erik Bruner-Yang adds umami to the classic sugar-salt combination by spreading these crisp-chewy chocolate-chip cookies with a rich, sweet-savory miso buttercream that’s flecked with minced lemon verbena.

  1. 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  2. 1 cup granulated sugar
  3. 1 cup light brown sugar
  4. 2 large eggs
  5. 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  6. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  7. 2 teaspoons hot water
  8. 3 cups all-purpose flour
  9. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  10. 2 cups chopped bittersweet chocolate
  11. Red Miso Buttercream
  1. Preheat the oven to 350° and line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper. In a standing electric mixer fitted with the paddle, beat the butter until creamy, 1 minute. Add the granulated sugar and brown sugar and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy, 3 minutes. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. In a bowl, dissolve the baking soda in the hot water and stir into the batter. At low speed, beat in the flour and salt until incorporated. Add the chocolate and beat just to distribute evenly.
  2. Scoop 1 1/2-inch balls of dough onto the lined baking sheets, spacing them 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake in the center of the oven, one baking sheet at a time, for 16 minutes, until golden; shift the baking sheet from front to back halfway through. Let the cookies cool. Serve with the Red Miso Buttercream.
Make Ahead The cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
