#FoodBloggerLove 2019: Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies & Double Coffee Milkshake

Hey, y'all!

We haven't talked since October.

A lot's been going on.

But that's not what we're here to discuss!

We're here to discuss #FoodBloggerLove 2019, the time of year when food bloggers across the blogosphere take the time out to show some love to their fellow food bloggers.

This year, I was assigned to Chef Sarah Elizabeth.  This was...a lot of pressure.  Of all the food blogs I follow, I have the BIGGEST blog crush on Sarah.  She wrote about my blog during last year's #FoodBloggerLove during, and I've been madly in love with her blog ever since.  She loves sweets, home entertaining, and pink cocktails, so you can immediately see why I'm a big fan.

She does a lot of entertainment-themed blog posts, and so for my post dedicated to her this year, I'm using one of my TV-themed cookbooks, which happens to correspond to one of my favorite shows ever...

During an early episode, Phoebe has to break some bad news to Rachel, and she makes her oatmeal cookies to soften the blow.

"I make the world's best oatmeal-raisin cookies in the world," she says.  "I don't make them a lot, because I don't think it's fair to the other cookies."

To go with these cookies, I made a milkshake jam-packed with coffee flavor in homage to the hours and hours (and hours, and hours, and hours...) the friends spend in Central Perk.

Please make sure to visit Sarah's Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram pages, because her blog and social media are such fun, and I just know you'll love her posts and other content as much as I do!  

Phoebe's Fabulous Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies & Friends Double Coffee Milkshakes
Makes 24 cookies & 1 large milkshake


12 Tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups raisins

Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.  Mix the butter and two sugars together with an electric mixer until fluffy.  Beat in egg and vanilla until smooth.

In a separate medium bowl, mix together the oats, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.  Stir the ingredients into the butter and sugar mixture until just combined.  Mix in the raisins.

Drop the dough in heaping tablespoons onto 2 large baking sheets, leaving 2 inches between each cookie.  Bake until cookies are golden-brown, 13-15 minutes.

Cool cookies on baking sheets for several minutes, then transfer them to a rack to cool completely.



1/4 cup brewed strong coffee, cooled
1/2 cup milk
2 scoops coffee ice cream

Mix ingredients together in a blender until smooth.

Pour the shake into a tall glass and add a straw before serving.
