Serves: about 4 dozen
  • About 48 HERSHEY'S KISSES Milk Chocolates
  • ½ cup shortening
  • ¾ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar

  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Remove wrappers from chocolates and set aside.
  2. Beat shortening and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended and smooth.
  3. Add ⅓ cup granulated sugar and brown sugar; beat until light and fluffy.
  4. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well.
  5. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat this into peanut butter mixture.

  7. Roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  8. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned (check at minimum baking time).
