    Default Peanut Butter & Chocolate Shortbread Bars

    These sound too GOOD!!

    Peanut Butter & Chocolate Shortbread Bars
    Upgrade the classic bar cookie with the buttery tenderness of a
    shortbread crust. These crowd-pleasing bars are covered with a creamy
    peanut butter spread and bittersweet chocolate ganache.

    Yields 4 dozen 1-1/2-inch-square bars.



    For the crust:
    7 oz. (14 Tbs.) unsalted butter, melted and cooled to just warm
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 tsp. table salt
    9-1/2 oz. (2 cups plus 2 Tbs.) unbleached all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup unsalted peanuts, finely chopped


    For the peanut butter filling:
    1 cup creamy peanut butter (not natural but an emulsified variety such
    as Jif)
    3 oz. (6 Tbs.) unsalted butter, at room temperature
    6 oz. (1-1/2 cups) confectioners’ sugar
    1 tsp. pure vanilla extract


    For the ganache:
    5 oz. good-quality bittersweet chocolate, such as Lindt Excellence,
    chopped (about 1 heaping cup)
    1/2 cup plus 2 Tbs. heavy cream
