Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies

August 6, 2009

Tia Susan got this recipe in 1983 (year Amy was born) in Colorado.  These cookies quickly became a grandkid favorite on the Christmas cookie tray.

1 ¾ c. flour

½ t. salt

1 t. baking soda

½ c. shortening

½ c. white sugar

½ c. brown sugar, firmly packed

½ c. peanut butter (use cheapest variety available for smoothness)

1 egg, beaten

2 T. milk

1 t. vanilla

Extra sugar for rolling

Hershey chocolate kisses

Combine all ingredients except kisses.  Blend well at low speed.  Shape into balls, using a rounded teaspoon.  Roll each ball in additional sugar.  Place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Remove from oven and top each cookie immediately with Hershey kiss, pressing down firming so cookie cracks around edge.
