Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies





I loved the taste of them, however even though my butter was super super soft (it was already nice and soft but then i had to leave for a couple of hours so didnt make them until i got back), i found the dough to be kind dry, but it still came together okay. the trouble came when i tried to slice them. even though they were well chilled-to the point that they were rock solid-and i was using a very sharp knife, when i tried to slice them, they just fell apart as soon as i hit a chocolate chip, and the dough was so cold that i had a hard time even smooshing them back together so i just did it as best as i could and hoped they melted together. i think next time i try these (and there will be a next time!), im going to skip the chocolate chips. if i decide to try the chocolate chips in it again, ill get the nestle mini chips. maybe it was the chocolate chips i was using-i sent my husband to the store for them and he brought home the ghirardelli milk chocolate chips which taste divine but are wider and flatter than nestle chips-maybe they were just too big and thats why the dough crumbled around them.
