PB&J Shortbread Barsadapted from Picky Palate
4 sticks softened butter
1 Cup granulated sugar
1/4 Cup packed brown sugar
3 3/4 Cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 Cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 Cup strawberry jam
1 Cup powdered sugar
2-3 Tablespoons milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a stand or electric mixer beat butter and sugars until well combined. Slowly add in flour and salt until just combined. Press the dough into a 9x13 pan coated with cooking spray.
Melt peanut butter in microwave for 20-30 seconds or until smooth and pourable. Pour evenly over shortbread.
Melt the jam in microwave for 20-30 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.
Remove and let cool completely.
Mix powdered sugar and milk until smooth, drizzle over bars.
