Another Recipe to share!

At this past Potluck Crop we were blessed with another home made dessert that made our mouths water and lots of mmmmmm's were heard for Louise's PB & J Shortbread!

Thanks so much Louise!

PB&J Shortbread Cookie Bars

4 sticks softened butter
1 Cup granulated sugar
1/4 Cup packed brown sugar
3 3/4 Cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 Cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 Cup strawberry jam
1 Cup powdered sugar
4-5 Tablespoons heavy cream

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a stand or electric mixer butter and sugars until well combined. Slowly add in flour and salt until just combined. Split dough in half and wrap 1/2 in plastic wrap. Save for another time.

Transfer remaining half to a foil lined 8×8 inch pan sprayed with cooking spray.

Melt peanut butter in microwave for 20 seconds or until smooth and pourable. Pour evenly over shortbread. Melt the jam in microwave for 20 seconds as well then pour evenly over peanut butter. Take a knife and gently swirl peanut butter and jelly over top of shortbread, not really cutting into the dough itself, Just the peanut butter and jelly.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until edges start to brown and centers are cooked through.

2. Remove and let cool completely. Remove from pan with foil edges and cut into squares. Mix powdered sugar and heavy cream until smooth, drizzle over each square and serve.


Now she'll be the first to tell you she got it from another source, but since she made it for us, I am just going to give her full points for awesomeness in the kitchen! Thanks Lou Lou for sharing!
