Peanut Blossoms

My mom use to make these all the time for special occasions and we all wanted to eat them.  Hershey Kisses were not a common thing in our house growing up so that made these cookies special.  They are a great combination of chocolate and peanut butter.  You can also switch things up and put a mini Reese's in the center instead of a Kiss.  That is amazing as well.  Hope you enjoy it!

1 3/4 C. Flour

1 tsp. Soda

1/2 C. Sugar

1/2 tsp. Salt

2 Tbsp. Milk

1/2 C. Brown Sugar

1/2 C. shortening

1/2 C. Peanut Butter

1 Egg

1 tsp. Vanilla

48 Chocolate Kisses

Combine all ingredients except kisses in large bowl. Mix on low speed until dough comes together. Shape into round balls. Place on baking sheet and cook at 385 for 10-12 minutes. Top each cookie with a Hershey kiss immediately as it comes out of the oven. Press kiss down firmly so the cookie compresses and cracks around the edges.
