- Add powdered sugar and mix until dough forms.
- Refrigerate about 30 minutes.

- Arrange on metal baking sheet.
- If dough become too soft, place it back in the fridge or the freezer for a short time.
- If your hands becomes sticky while rolling the ropes, dust them with a bit of powdered sugar, but don't wet them :)

- Beat butter and sugar until creamy
- Add corn syrup and vanilla and mix to combine.
- Cut in flour and cornstarch to create a moldable dough
- Form into ball and refrigerate about 20 minutes. See Photo
- When both the shortbread dough and the peanut butter dough ropes have chilled, pinch of about 2-3T sized bits of shortbread dough and pat between palms to create a "sheet" of dough that a rope will fit into. See Photo
- Fold edges up and over to complete cover peanut butter rope.
- Return to the same cool baking sheet.
- Repeat to cover all peanut butter ropes. Try to make sure all edges are sealed and press together any breaks or cracks.
- Bake at 325 for about 18 minutes until shortbread is just barely lightly browning. See Photo
