Peanut Butter Shortbread

Shortbread-Peanut Butter Chocolate Triangles

Peanut Butter Shortbread

Peanut Butter Chocolate Shortbread is a great marriage of my two favorite duos’. I love peanut butter and I love shortbread, so the two coming together to make a fabulous cookie is a can’t-go-wrong creation.

Peanut Butter

Ahh, just love that buttery cookie of the shortbread and recently I just haven’t been able to get enough of peanut butter lately.  I lather it on apples, toast, or simply scoop it out with a spoon and enjoy every bite.  Yum!

There is not a day that goes by that I don’t have this classic peanut butter staple. Lately, it gets loaded into my fruit smoothies and love the taste of it along with the fruit.

Recently, I have discovered the new flavor of peanut butter with honey, its fabulous and is what I used in this recipe.  Of course, you can use any peanut butter you like.  Crunchy peanut butter would provide a great added texture element to this peanut butter cookie recipe.

Baking Shortbread

Cooper Baking Pan

This Peanut Butter Shortbread cookie recipe gets baked in these neat custom cooper brownie pans that provide perfect sliced cookies.  The shortbread triangle cookie bottoms get dipped in a chocolate coating mixture, then with fall sprinkles.  The sprinkles really give it a custom fall look and another great combination of chocolate and peanut butter that marry so well together.

You can adjust your sprinkles to the corresponding season and make this all year-long for a great peanut butter chocolate treat!

Here is a super simple way to bake multiple individual servings in just one pan that requires no slicing afterwards:
