These cookies are very easy and yummy! I got this recipe from a lovely book called “Southern Living: 1986 Annual Recipes”

Ingredients:

1/2 cup shortening

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 egg

2 tablesppons milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup sugar

approx 36 chocolate kisses

Cream shortening and peanut butter; gradually add 1/2 cup ugar and brown sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add egg, milk, and vanilla; beat well.

Combine flour, soda, and salt seperately; add to creamed mixture.

Roll dough into 1-inch balls; then roll in 1/2 cup shugar. Place balls 2 inches apart on a  lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 F for 8 minutes. Remove from oven; press a chocolate kiss into teh center of each cookie. Yield: 3 dozen.

Emily’s notes: Make sure you unwrap the kisses in advance so you can put them on top right after the cookies come out of the oven so they can melt to the cookie. That’s about it, they’re pretty simple to make.
