It’s another cold day here so a good excuse to stay safe and warm inside, under my kotatsu. I have one more treat from 御菓子・Okashi Tugi to try. It has sesame, koshi-an (smooth red bean paste), walnut and mascarpone! This isn’t the first time I have had cheese in mochi, the convenience stores here have lots of weird seasonal combinations, but this was definitely the first fancy cheese mochi I have tried. It was beautiful! Very smooth but the walnut really added good texture. I will need to invent some excuses to walk back over there soon.
