Mmmm, Cookies…

Cookie-Post-Image

It’s been said that if you give a mouse a cookie, it’s bound to ask for milk. Well, if you give the team at PT’s cookies, we’re going to ask for something stronger than that. To celebrate the return of the Girl Scout cookie, our team has put together some excellent coffee pairings to accompany these delicious, seasonal treats. Here’s what we’ve decided:

Thin Mints
For a minty twist on the classic milk+cookie combo, go ahead and splurge with an iced mocha made with our Flying Monkey espresso. Spro Tip: Freeze the Thin Mints first for a little extra crispness.

Caramel deLites
Nothing hits the spot like an affogato made with our Southpaw espresso, and what better than the toasted coconut topping on these cookies to go with it? Whether crumbled on top or nestled at the bottom of the glass to soak up all the affogoodness, this is a winning combination.

Shortbread
Start your day off right with the perfect balance of acidity and sweetness by grabbing a hot cup of Cafetín and a few shortbread cookies. If you’re looking for a fun breakfast on-the-go, this is the combo for you!

Peanut Butter Patties
Need an afternoon pick-me-up on your coffee break? Sit back and enjoy a cup of our Sertãozinho Pulped Natural with a stack of Peanut Butter Patties for a bold and powerful kick to your day.

Cranberry Citrus Crisps
Summer is right around the corner, so why not go ahead and find a patch of sunshine to enjoy a glass of iced Elida Estate Natural and some Cranberry Citrus Crisps. It may be below freezing outside, but this snack tastes like July.

Lemonades
Our Villa Loyola coffee is amazing on its own, but is sure to pop when paired with the lemony, frosted Lemonades. Serve this coffee hot to savor the cookie’s melt-in-your-mouth frosting, or iced for a chilly, citric snack.

Thanks-A-Lots
Need an awesome thank you gift for a friend or just want to treat yourself? The Grand Cru Mokka is an excellent coffee to pair with a box of chocolate-y Thanks-A-Lots.

Here’s the bottom line: Girl Scout cookies and coffee just make sense together. With so many different possibilities, we’re curious – what’s your favorite cookie-coffee combo?

*Full disclosure: several Girl Scout cookies were harmed in the writing of this blog.
