Peanut Butter Blossoms
Ingredients
  • 1/2  cup  shortening
  • 1/2  cup  peanut butter
  • 1/2  cup  granulated sugar
  • 1/2  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 1  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/8  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1  egg
  • 2  tablespoons  milk
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 1 3/4  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1/4  cup  granulated sugar
  •  Chocolate kisses or stars
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl beat shortening and peanut butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the 1/2 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg, milk, and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour.

2. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in the 1/4 cup granulated sugar. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are firm and bottoms are lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate kiss into each cookies center. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool. Makes 54 cookies.
