Peanut Butter Blossoms

Surely you've had these before. But maybe it's been years. It'd been years for me. This recipe came from the back of the Hershey Mini Kisses bag. They came out PERFECT.

Mine had 3 mini-kisses on top, instead of 1 regular-sized one.
Didn't get to take a pic of mine, but other than that, mine looks just like the above picture.

Peanut Butter Blossoms

1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
2 T. milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
Additional granulated sugar
10 ounce package of Hershey's mini-kisses

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Beat together shortening & peanut butter. Beat in 1/3 cup sugar & brown sugar. Beat in egg, milk & vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda & salt; gradually blend into Peanut Butter mixture.

3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar, place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately place 3 chocolate mini-kisses on top (or 1 regular kiss) of each cookie, pressing down slightly. Cool cookies completely on wire rack. About 4 dozen cookies. r
