Peanut Butter Squares

1 cup butter or margarine 
1 cup chunky peanut butter 
2 cups graham cracker crumbs 
2 cups sifted powder sugar 
Small bag (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate morsels 
2 Tablespoons shortening
Combine butter and peanut butter in a glass bowl. Cover with a paper towel, and microwave for about 1-1/2 minutes or until butter is melted. Stir to blend, then stir in graham cracker crumbs and powdered sugar. Press into an oblong baking dish. (Hint: Line the dish with aluminum foil that is extended over the edges of the pan so that you can lift out and slice - otherwise they tend to stick). Combine morsels and shortening in a 2-cup measuring cup. Microwave approximately two minutes or until morsels and shortening melt. Stir well to blend. Spread over peanut butter mixture. Cover and chill. Cut into squares. These taste like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
Note: To crush graham crackers, either use food processor, or put crackers in a plastic zip-lock bag and crush with a rolling pin.
