"We love peanut butter cookies especially warm just out of the oven. To incorporate Door County Coffee, I chose my favorite flavored coffee, Vanilla Creme Brulee and made coffee filled peanut butter cookie sandwiches."


This is a Door County Coffee Fan recipe. It was not made in the kitchens of the Door County Coffee Café.
