Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

These delicious peanut butter chocolate chip shortbread cookies combine the best of three worlds – chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies and shortbread – into one delicious treat.

I’ve long been a fan of the texture of shortbread cookies. They are crisp and light with a delicate flavor. 

Adding chocolate chips and peanut butter into the recipe adds a richness to the cookie that is delightful.

The cookies are easy to make.  You just combine the dough into logs and refrigerate for a while and then slice and bake.

You can make as many or as few as you like at one time. Just keep the dough covered and refrigerated until ready to use.
