  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Beat peanut butter and shortening together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy; add white sugar and brown sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk, and vanilla extract to creamed mixture and beat until smooth.
  3. Mix flour, baking soda, and salt together in a separate bowl; gradually beat into the creamed mixture until dough is just mixed. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and arrange on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Immediately press a chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.

Love these! I did roll the balls of dough in sugar before baking. These were the first to disappear from my cookie trays this Christmas. I think I finally learned to make sure the balls of do...

This is the perfect recipe for peanut blossom soft and delicious! It is the recipe from the back of the Hershey's Kisses bag.


All my resipes i get here this site are going to be try in one week then i will let u know i can not wait to do it

Very easy recipe! Love them

Ugh so sorry. I went back three times and missed the flour lol...sorry

The only way this recipe is different from Hershey's Peanut Blossom recipe is Hershey's calls for an additional 1/2 tsp. almond extract, which adds more flavor.

Turned out perfect!
