Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies

This recipe was no where to be found, until I looked on the back of the Hershey's Kiss bag. Voila!

1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
2 T milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 salt
Hershey Kisses
additional granulated sugar

1. Heat oven to 375.
2. Beat shortening and peanut butter in a large bowl until well blended. Add white and brown sugars; beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture. 
3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet. 
4. Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press an  unwrapped chocolate into the center of each cookie.

Thanks, Kenz! You reminded me of that episode of "Friends" where Monica is trying to figure out Phoebe's Grandma's chocolate chip cookie recipe. It was on the bag the whole time! Those crazy friends.
