Hershey Kiss Topped Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

When it comes to my daughter's favorite holiday cookies...hands down...this is her favorite. Every year she pesters me until I finally give in and bake them for her. She will eat 6 or 7 of them at a time LOL

Hershey Kiss Topped Peanut Butter Cookies

48 Hershey (tm) Kisses (milk chocolate or hugs)
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup peanut butter (creamy style)
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar (packed)
1 large egg
2 tablespoons cold milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I like Watkins (tm) Vanilla Extract)
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
granulated sugar

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Remove wrappers from Hershey (tm) kisses. Beat shortening and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended. Add 1/3 c. 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.

Shape dough into 1" balls. Roll into granulated sugar and place on a ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and immediately press a chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie. Let cool.

Store in an air tight container.
