48 Hershey Kisses

3/4 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup shortening

1/3 cup packed light brown sugar

1/3 cup sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons milk

1 1/2 cup flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

Granulated sugar for rolling


Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Unwrap your Hershey Kisses.


In a large mixing bowl, combine shortening and peanut butter. Mix well.


Next, add both sugars to the shortening/peanut butter mixture and beat until light and fluffy. Add egg, milk, and vanilla, and mix well. 


In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add the dry mixture into the peanut butter mixture and mix well. 


Shape the dough into 1-inch balls and roll in granulated sugar. Place on an un-greased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes until the edges are lightly browned.  Remove from the oven, and immediately place a Hershey Kiss in the center of each cookie. Place on wire rack to cool.
