White Wine and Chocolate!

I usually get a confused face when I pair an acidic white or rose with chocolate, then you taste it! Now you get it.

Here is a recipe for a custom pairing with Brecon Estate, here in Paso Robles

Miso Chocolate and Walnut Cookies Pair With Brecon True Acacia


1 1/8 cups (255 g) unsalted butter melted (2 sticks + 2 Tbsp butter)

1 cup (220 g) light brown sugar packed

1 cup (200 g) granulated sugar packed

1 tablespoon miso powder

2 large eggs room temperature

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups (250 g) all purpose flour

3/4 cup (65 g) cocoa powder natural

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups (473 g) chocolate chips semi-sweet

1 cup crushed walnuts

Step 1

melt the unsalted butter in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Once the butter is melted, add in the cocoa powder and stir it until it’s smooth and combined.

Step 2

Add in the melted butter and cocoa powder mixture, brown sugar, miso powder and white sugar to the bowl of your stand mixer. Mix the ingredients on medium speed for 1-2 minutes with the paddle attachment until it is light and fluffy. Scrape the bowl when needed

Step 3

Add in the room temperature eggs. Mix again on medium speed for 1-2 minutes until it’s light and airy. Scrape the bowl. While mixing on low, add in the vanilla, salt, baking soda, flour, walnuts and chocolate chips.

Step 4

Mix the dough just enough so that it’s combined. Preheat your oven to 350ºF (177ºC) and prepare a sheet pan with parchment paper. With a spoon or ice cream scoop, make the dough into 2 Tablespoon-sized cookie dough balls.

Step 5

Place the cookie dough balls onto a sheet pan about 3″ apart. Let these cookies sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes to give time for the flour to absorb the liquids.

Step 6

Bake the cookies for about 10 minutes, or until they are no longer shiny in the center and the edges are set. Allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet. Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack to allow them to cool all the way.

Step 7

Open up that beautiful white wine and enjoy! Maybe even give the cookie a little dunk. Cheers!
