A favorite cookie recipe at my house. Kids love to help make these.
Peanut Blossom Cookies
1 bag Hershey kisses
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1. Heat oven to 375'F. Remove wrappers from Kisses.
2. Beat shortening and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended. Add sugars; beat until light and fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture.
3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet.
4. Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a kiss into center of each coolie; cookie will crack around edges. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Makes about 4 dozen.
