1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper. In a standing electric mixer fitted with paddle, beat butter until creamy, 1 minute. Add granulated sugar and brown sugar and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy, 3 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In a bowl, dissolve baking soda in hot water and stir into batter. At low speed, beat in the flour and salt until incorporated. Add chocolate and beat just to distribute evenly.
2. Scoop 1 1/2-inch balls of dough onto lined baking sheets, spacing them 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake in center of oven, one baking sheet at a time, for 16 minutes, until golden; shift baking sheet from front to back halfway through. Let cookies cool. Serve with Red Miso Buttercream.
