Yield: Yields 4 dozen 1-1/2-inch-square 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.
Make Ahead Tips
The bars will keep at room temperature for 1 week.
For the best results, measure your flour by weight instead of volume. (1 cup of all-purpose flour equals 4-1/2 oz.) If you don’t have a scale, be sure to use the proper technique when filling your measuring cups.

I was very disappointed. I thought they were lacking in flavour - the middle layer needed some salt or something to bring out the peanut butter? Also, the bottom layer was very brittle and crumbly.
Good but felt as if the ratio of peanut butter to chocolate was off, although that is personal preference. If I make again, I will double the peanut butter filling and apply the ganache thinly rather than using it all.
