Ingredients

  • 180g butter, chilled, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tbs white miso paste
  • 1 cup (220g) brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (55g) caster sugar
  • 1 Coles Australian Free Range Egg
  • 1 Coles Australian Free Range Egg yolk
  • 1 cup (150g) plain flour
  • 1 cup (160g) wholemeal plain flour
  • 1 cup (90g) rolled oats
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 small green pear, cored, finely chopped
  • 60g dried pears, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup (65g) white choc bits

Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 170°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Place the butter in a saucepan over high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 2-3 mins or until dark brown. Transfer to a large heatproof bowl with the miso paste and whisk to combine. Set aside to cool completely.

STEP 2

Add the combined sugar to the butter mixture in the bowl. Use an electric mixer to beat until pale and creamy. Add the egg and egg yolk and beat for 1-2 mins or until well combined and a little paler in colour. Add the combined flour, oats and baking powder and stir to combine. Add the chopped pear, dried pear and choc bits. Stir to combine.

STEP 3

Roll 1/4-cup portions of the mixture into balls and flatten slightly. Top each with 1 pear slice. Place on lined trays, about 5cm apart.

STEP 4

Bake, swapping the trays halfway through cooking, for 20-25 mins or until golden brown. Set aside on the trays for 10 mins to cool slightly before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Serve with thinly sliced pear
