Highlander Grogg Butterscotch Caramel Mug Cookie

If you've spent any time around the Crooks + Coffee community, you'd pretty quickly hear a strong fan club for the beloved Highlander Grogg flavor. It's a wonderful mix of butterscotch, caramel and vanilla. You can easily drink it black or mix in cream for an extra decadent cup of coffee. So, that got me thinking, if this coffee is the perfect mix of sweet, wouldn't it also make the perfect dessert? So I decided to grab my favorite cookie in a mug recipe from another blogger, Number 2 Pencil, and adapt it to the Highlander Grogg flavors!

Do you ever make a cup of iced coffee, add ice and by the time you get halfway down the cup, it's basically murky water and cream?

If there's a single drink that conveys summer, I am almost positive that has to be lemonade. Something about lemonade immediately gives me feelings of sunshine, laughter and fun.

For starters, you need a high-quality coffee. Most of the time, I use my Crooks and Coffee Columbian Whole Bean Coffee. I like using whole bean because I can prep the beans to a coarse grind.
