Peanut Butter Reese's Pieces Shortbread Bars: delicious, easy melt in your mouth shortbread!


  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 Tablespoon milk
  • ¾ cup mini Reese's Pieces candies


  1. Beat butter with powdered sugar for about 3 minutes. Beat in flour, salt and peanut butter. Mixture will be crumbly. Add in milk and mix with hands.
  2. Dump mixture (will still be slightly crumbly) and knead dough together on a piece of parchment paper. Press into a 12x10 rectangle. Slide parchment paper onto a large baking sheet. Press the candies into the top of the dough.
  3. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes. Cut immediately and allow to cool.
  4. Separate and store in air tight container. ENJOY.


  • Make ahead. After combining the ingredients for the dough, roll into a log shape, about 2 ½ inches in diameter. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to bake. When ready to bake, slice log into ¼-inch slices, press candies on top of cookie and bake as directed. These will be shaped similarly to our icebox cookies.
