    You gotta love all that butter! Actually I've had serious bakers tell me that butter is what makes a cookie real. Looks yummy!

    I have also heard that butter is every chef's secret ingredient.

    Hurray for butter! My husband has been making homemade baklava lately. You wouldn't believe the butter in it! And it tastes magnificent.

    Thanks for the recipe. Oatmeal cookies are my favorite by far.
