When combined together, chocolate and peanut butter can make such a wonderful combination. For my own preferences, I’m absolutely smitten with both chocolate and peanut butter whether in cake, cookie or in candy format (Reeses will always be a favorite). This recipe in particular, Chocolate-Peanut Butter Shortbread Sandwich Cookies (from Craftsman and Wolves as featured in Food and Wine Magazine), combines both of these flavors for a classic chocolate and peanut butter taste; however, the element of shortbread makes for a nice alternative due to its crunchy, crumbly nature when paired with the creamy peanut butter filling.

I will admit that this is the first time that I had ever tasted chocolate shortbread. Judging by how much I liked it, I’m a little bummed that I had not discovered it sooner! Anyway, this is a fantastic recipe from Craftsman and Wolves, a contemporary patisserie in San Francisco. I will definitely make it a point to bookmark this place to visit in the future.
