Ingredients: Makes 4 dozen

  • ½ cup shortening
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1¾ cups flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • Additional sugar, for rolling
  • 48 chocolate kisses

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a mixer, blend shortening and peanut butter together until creamy. Add milk, vanilla, and egg. Stir in flour, sugar, brown sugar, and salt, and blend at low speed until a stiff dough forms. Shape into 1-inch balls and roll in additional sugar. Place balls two inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately top each cookie with a chocolate kiss, pressing down firmly so the cookie cracks around the edges. Remove from cookie sheets and let cool.
