Peanut butter blossoms

Very good… one of my favorites actually.

What you’ll need:

1 bag Hershey’s Kisses
½ c shortening
¾ c creamy peanut butter
1/3 c sugar
1/3 c brown sugar
1 egg
2 Tbl milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 ½ c flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
Extra sugar to roll in

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and unwrap the kisses. Beat shortening and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended. Add 1/3 c sugar and brown sugar; beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in extra sugar and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 – 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a kiss into the center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheet and let cool. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

Note: cookies will crack around the edges.
