Peanut Butter Reese’s Pieces Shortbread Bars
One day it’s a lemon dessert I crave and the next day I am drooling over these peanut butter shortbread bars.
Not just any old peanut butter cookies. Buttery, peanut butter, crunchy, melt in your mouth shortbread bars! Oh, and filled to the max with mini Reese’s Pieces.
Have you seen these minis yet? I found mine in the baking aisle. You could totally add regular Reese’s Pieces if you prefer, or can’t find the minis!
These are quite easy to make too. Mix up your dough and pat it into a big rectangle on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Press in your Reese’s Pieces and bake. After removing from oven, immediately slice the cookies into any shape. I like a nice dunkable stick, but you can do squares or triangles too! Allow to cool completely on pan, then separate and remove. Store in a covered, air tight container. ENJOY!
