Picture this: A freshly baked shortbread cookie dipped in a magical blend of peanut butter and chocolate. It is truly heaven on earth. These can be made into any shapes and decorated any way, but I made them for Valentine's Day.

Ingredients
  

Ingredients:

    Shortbread:

    • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
    • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
    • 1 1/4 cups vegan butter softened
    • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

    Peanut Butter Chocolate:

    • 2 cups of melted vegan chocolate
    • 2 tbsp peanut butter

    Instructions
     

    • 1) Preheat the oven to 325 ⁰ F.
    • 2) In a large bowl, stir the flour and powdered sugar together.
    • 3) Add the softened butter and vanilla and mix with a hand mixer until fully blended. The dough will be crumbly, but when you mix it with your hands, it will form together.
    • 4) Place a piece of parchment paper with some sprinkled flour and form dough into a ball.
    • 5) Roll the dough until it's about 1/2 inch thick and cut into desired shapes. (I used a heart shaped cookie cutter
    • 6) Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes, until the bottom is just slightly golden.
    • 7) Let cool for 10 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack.
    • 8) In the meantime, melt your chocolate on the stovetop in a small saucepan, stirring occasionally so it doesn't stick. Alternatively, microwave in 30 second increments. Mix in the peanut butter.
    • 9) When cookies are cooled, dip them in the peanut butter chocolate.
