Peanut Butter Blossoms

One of my favorites, but I rarely make them.

48 Hershey's Kisses
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup creamy Peanut Butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Granulated sugar

1. Heat oven to 375°F. Remove wrappers from chocolates.

2. Beat shortening and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended. Add 1/3 cup granulated 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.

3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar, place on ungreased cookie sheet and press Hershey's kiss on top.

4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 4 dozen cookies.

*Just a note, you can also bake without the kisses and put them on as soon as they come out of the oven*

I wanted to pop in and thank you for your kindness. I appreciate the thoughts so much.

I LOVE those cookies. My Nana used to make them for Christmas, but I have never attempted to make them for myself. I've only recently begun to try my hand at baking different things.
