Peanut Blossoms

 

Serves: 48

 

 

1 3/4 cups flour

1 teaspoon of baking soda

teaspoon salt

cup brown sugar

cup chunky peanut butter

2 tablespoons milk

48 Hershey chocolate kisses

cup sugar

cup vegetable shortening

1 egg

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

 

In a large mixer bowl, stir the all-purpose flour, baking soda and salt together. Add all of the remaining ingredients except chocolate kisses and mix at the medium speed of an electric mixer until well combined, scraping the bowl occasionally. Chill the dough for 30 minutes.

 

Preheat oven to 375. Roll small amounts of dough into 1-inch balls. Place on an un-greased cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes or until they turn a light brown color. Remove from oven and immediately press a chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie (the cookie will crack around the edge). Repeat with the remaining dough.
