Peanut Blossoms

My mom used to make this cookie when I was little. Still yummy!

Peanut Blossoms

1 3/4 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1 ts. baking soda
1/2 ts. salt
1/2 c. shortening
1/2 c. peanut butter
2 Tb. milk
1 ts. vanilla
1 egg
about 48 candy kisses, unwrapped (maybe a few extra, just to test)

Heat oven to 375. In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, salt, shortening, milk, vanilla, and egg. Mix until stiff dough forms. Shape into 1" balls; roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately top each cookie with a candy kiss, pressing down firmly. Carefully remove from cookie sheet and allow to cool. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
