  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 dough are small - I tend to get lazy and use more dough each time I roll out a batch but a 1-inch ball is perfect for these. Read More

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. Read More
