Hershey's Kiss Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

Hershey's Kiss Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe
Every week I treat my family to a batch of freshly-made homemade cookies and I'm always trying out new cookie recipes and mixing in the classics that my family loves. While it's convenient to make cookies from a boxed mix...I just prefer to make my own from scratch. Besides, they taste better, I control the ingredients and there are no preservatives in them.

Just last week I made one of my family's favorite cookies which happens to be Hershey's Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies which we call the Hershey's Kiss Peanut Butter Cookies. The cookies are a peanut butter flavored cookie with a Hershey's Milk Chocolate Kiss on top. They're delicious, especially warm from the oven! Here's the recipe which will make approximately 40 cookies.

Hershey's Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies Recipe

48 Hershey's Kisses Milk Chocolate
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup Reese's Creamy Peanut Butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 medium egg
2 Tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
additional granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Unwrap 48 Hershey's Milk Chocolate Kisses and place them in a small bowl; set aside.

In a large mixing bowl cream together the shortening and creamy peanut butter. Beat in the granulated sugar and brown sugar until creamy. Blend in the egg, milk and vanilla extract until all ingredients are combined.

In a large mixing bowl sift together the all-purpose flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture into the creamed mixture, beating after each addition until all ingredients are combined together.

Form the cookie dough into 1" diameter balls. Roll each ball into a little bit of the additional granulated sugar. Place the balls onto an ungreased baking sheet and bake in a preheated 375 degree F oven for 8-10 minutes or until done. Remove from oven and immediately place one unwrapped Hershey's Milk Chocolate Kiss on top. Let cookies sit on the sheet for an additional minute or two and then transfer to a wire rack for cooling. Once cool, store them in an airtight container.

I happen to have too much peanut butter in the house ,so I am looking for both sweet and savory recipes in which to use it. I shall try these soon, but since I have dark chocolate Hershey's kisses I am using them.
