Peanut Blossom Cookies

  • 1/2 c. shortening
  • 1/2 c. peanut butter
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 3/4 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Hershey's chocolate kisses

In a large bowl, cream together the shortening, peanut butter, and sugars. Add the egg, milk, and vanilla. Beat well. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredient mixture to the creamed mixture. Mix thoroughly. Shape by rounded teaspoonful into balls. Roll in sugar. Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375°F for 8 minutes. Remove them from the oven and place a solid Hershey's chocolate kiss on the top of each cookie pressing down so that the cookie cracks around the edge. Return to the oven and bake for 2 to 5 minutes longer. Remove and cool the cookies on a rack.
