I’ve always loved shortbread cookies just as they are, but sometimes… when the cookie butter comes calling, you have to answer the door. So I’ve combined the best of both into one deeeee-lectable bar cookie.
Et voila, cookie butter shortbread bars.
To make them, I mix up a buttery batch of shortbread dough and add the star ingredient – cookie butter emulsion by LorAnn Oils. The creamy, buttery spice cookie flavor is unmistakably delicious!
To make them even more festive and cookie butter-licious, I drizzled a cookie butter powdered sugar glaze over the top and added some festive sprinkles!
