Peanut butter shortbread chocolate cookies are a real treat for any cookie lover.

I’m such a sucker for shortbread. Recently I decided my shortbread should be peanut buttered and finished with chocolate. I took this idea a step further and sugared the cookies for a perfectly sweet crusty texture. As I was making the cookies I decided to post the process on IG stories and in return I was met with an overwhelming amount of requests to share the recipe. Not only did I write it down for you all, I also placed my IG stories video below for a quick reference to how I brought my Peanut Butter Shortbread Chocolate Cookies to life! Enjoy with tea, coffee, hot chocolate, water, or any other drink that makes you happy.
