  • Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together in a small bowl.

  • Beat shortening, peanut butter, 1/2 cup white sugar, and brown sugar together in a large bowl until creamy. Add egg, milk, and vanilla extract; mix until just blended. Slowly add the flour mixture until dough is combined.

  • Roll dough into balls and roll into the remaining white sugar to coat. Place cookies on baking sheets and make a small indentation in the center of each using your thumb.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 9 to 11 minutes. Remove from oven and place a chocolate kiss in each indentation. Allow to cool slightly; remove from baking sheets and cool completely.
