Peanut Blossoms

These are my absolute most favorite cookies in the World!
It's my Grandma's Recipe that everyone in my family uses when we need something quick, yummy and beautiful.
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar -- cream these all together
Add 1 egg and 2 T milk and 1 tsp. Vanilla --- cream again
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. soda
  • 1/2 salt
Shape into balls and roll in a bowl of white sugar. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 8 minutes and remove from the oven and place the chocolate kiss in the center of each cookie, pressing gently down. Return to oven for 2-5 more minutes.
