Chocolate Peanut Butter Shortbread

3/4 C butter, softened
1/3 C creamy peanut butter
2/3 C sugar
1 t vanilla
2 C flour
2/3 C mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375.  Combine butter, peanut butter, sugar and vanilla in large bowl.  Beat at medium speed until creamy.  Reduce speed to low and add flour.  Beat just until mixture forms a dough.  Stir in 2/3 C mini chocolate chips.  Pat dough evenly into lightly greesed 15x10 jelly roll pan.  (I put a sheet of wax paper over the top and roll out with my pizza dough roller).  Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until set and lightly browned.  Immediately cut shortbread into columns and rows.  Cool completely, THEN remove from pan. 

Drizzle:  2/3 C semi -sweet chocolate chips & 2 t shortening

Combine drizzle ingredients and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring each time until melted and smooth.  Drizzle over shortbread.  Let set.  Enjoy!!
