Nice for casual get togethers.
INGREDIENTS (for 7 servings):
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 14 milk chocolate candy kisses, unwrapped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets.
In a large bowl, cream together shortening and peanut butter; gradually add sugar and brown sugar, creaming well. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
Sift together dry ingredients and add to creamy mixture.
Shape dough into balls, using a rounded teaspoon for each ball. Roll balls in sugar and place on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Top each cookie with a candy kiss, pressing down firmly so cookie cracks around edges.
Put back into oven for 2 to 5 minutes longer, until golden brown.
