|1.||Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.|
|2.||In a large bowl, cream together the shortening, peanut butter, brown sugar, and 1 cup white sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, and stir in the milk and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the peanut butter mixture until well blended. Shape tablespoonfuls of dough into balls, and roll in remaining white sugar. Place cookies 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets.|
|3.||Bake for 10 to12 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from oven, and immediately press a chocolate kiss into each cookie. Allow to cool completely; the kiss will harden as it cools.
I make these every year at Christmas time and was dismayed to find I did not have it on my blog yet! These are a bit time consuming (it’s the unwrapping of the chocolate kisses and rolling in sugar that does it), but they are well worth the extra effort.
Kisses to you all!
