pb&j shortbread cookie bars

I found this recipe blog a few weeks ago, and I really like her style!

I made these tonight for dessert, and they were heavenly! Soooooo good!

Original post here.

PB&J Shortbread Cookie Bars

1 cup butter, at room temp
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 cup brown sugar
2 1/4 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup jam of your choice
1 cup powdered sugar
4 TB heavy whip
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Pre-heat oven to 350. Combine butter and sugars mix on low until creamy. Slowly add the flour and the salt, mix until just combined. Place dough in a buttered 8x8 pan, gently pat down. Melt the peanut butter and the jam in the microwave for about 25 sec. Pour peanut butter over dough, spread out with a spatula. Swirl jam over the peanut butter. Using a butter knife, swirl the 2 together. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting.

Combine the powdered sugar, cream and vanilla and beat on low until combined. Whip on high for a minute. Drizzle over cooled bars.
