Sesame Miso Cones (Take 2)

Hosting my book club requires cleaning the house, making good food and serving good wine. After running out to purchase a case of wine on the weekend, cleaning the night before, all that was left was putting out a good arrangement of food! I knew immediately that I needed to try another variation of the Original Sesame Miso Cone. After winning the food competition, it was time to try these puppies again! Side note: yes, we do read books and yes we do discuss them.

The variation to the recipe this time was more in the production than the recipe itself. The only alteration we made to the ingredients was that we used half black sesame seeds this time rather than all white sesame seeds.

For those lazy readers out there who refuse to look back at the original recipe, I will be kind and repost here (mix all together over low heat on the stove, place 2 tbls on a lined parchment paper cookie sheet, cook at 350' for 10-12 minutes or until browning)


  • 113g butter
  • 240g golden syrup
  • 2 tablespoons miso paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 60g flour
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 120ml sesame seeds (60ml black, 60ml white) 

Presentation (Version 2)

Since we got home from work and only had an hour to book club, we didn't think that making the original cone shape would work as they need time to harden in the fridge. So we decided to roll this time (like sushi). 

We also used blue cheese this time with pair and skipped any sprouts. The black sesame seeds really added to the presentation! Yum.

The new roll technique worked and resulted in a very large piece, so we cut in half. Next time I would cut into three's as this is such a rich recipe, smaller is better.

Threw these on a plate and put in the fridge for 30 minutes. They were a big hit and I promised the book club that I would bring a new version for the December meeting!

My clean living room awaiting my book club ladies!

The food spread! We ate almost all of it! Good job ladies :) I won't mention how many bottles of wine are left....that's for us to know.
