Peanut Butter Shortbread Cookies | SweetLeaf®

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 Tbsp. SweetLeaf® Organic Stevia Sweetener
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Optional Topping
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 6 oz. baking chocolate, semi-sweet
  • 1/3 cup roasted peanuts, chopped
  • Directions

    Using the paddle attachment of your stand mixer, cream together butter, peanut butter, and SweetLeaf Organic Stevia Sweetener until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, until fully incorporated. Mix in vanilla extract. Add flour and mix on slow until combined.

    With a 1-oz. scoop, portion out dough and place on a tray. Refrigerate for 4-6 hours or overnight.

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Transfer refrigerated cookies onto a prepared baking sheet, leaving about an inch between each cookie in all directions. Press down on the cookies to flatten them slightly. Bake for 8-12 minutes.

    Icing
    Place chocolate and heavy cream together in a microwave-safe container. Heat for 30 seconds and stir. Heat in 10 second increments until completely melted and smooth. Dip the top of the cookies in the melted chocolate and add a few of the roasted, chopped peanuts. Allow to cool, and enjoy!
