These are one of my favorite kinds of cookies to make! I love making them as gifts because they are SO easy and even more fun to eat!
Here’s what you need:
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup shortening
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Granulated sugar for rolling
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Unwrap your Hershey Kisses.
In a large mixing bowl, combine shortening and peanut butter. Mix well.
Next, add both sugars to the shortening/peanut butter mixture and beat until light and fluffy. Add egg, milk, and vanilla, and mix well.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add the dry mixture into the peanut butter mixture and mix well.
Shape the dough into 1-inch balls and roll in granulated sugar. Place on an un-greased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes until the edges are lightly browned. Remove from the oven, and immediately place a Hershey Kiss in the center of each cookie. Place on wire rack to cool.
