Recipe For Peanut Butter Bars

This recipe for peanut butter bars came about because I was simply craving peanut butter. However, I did not want to make peanut butter bars with chocolate. I wanted to use chocolate chips in this shortbread pastry.

Shortbread Pastry

I love shortbread cookies. Give me a shortbread pastry with a cup of tea and I am very happy. Mostly shortbread recipes are butter or pecan shortbread.

What if you could make a shortbread pastry that is peanut butter flavored? That is how these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Shortbreads came into play.
