Default 3/8" cabinet door edge overlap

I am making cabinet doors and I am looking for a router bit that performs two operation at one time.. .....I have a shaper cutter that cuts the 3/8" round over profile as well as the 3/8" rabbet for the inside lip. However my shaper is down and I will be using my router and router table. What I am looking for is a router bit that has the same cutting profile as the shaper bit. I want to cut the 3/8" round over profile and the 3/8" rabbet cut in one operation. Those who have used the shaper cutter I am referring to know that the 3/8" rabbet cut is tapered on the inside edge to match the swing of the door. It's not a sharp 90 degree shoulder. Any help will be greatly appreciated
thank you

All of the major router bit companies make them that way with the tapered rabbet. The side that opens must have that in order to work properly.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Would something like adapter that allows use of a shaper cutter on a router be helpful?
