  1. The recipe calls for 3/4 POUND of butter. Is that amount correct? I always read ingredients before starting to cook/bake to make sure I have everything needed. But the butter amount seems like to much to me.
    Thank you.

  2. My husband loves oatmeal raisin cookies and I have made them for him many times, and he always said they were good, but I was never convinced he really liked them. Well, I stumbled across your recipe a couple of weeks ago, and I made these immediately. He adored them! I even liked them and I am usually not a fan of oatmeal raisin cookies. I will make these from now on, they are amazing! Thank you!
