  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together shortening and peanut butter; gradually add sugar and brown sugar, creaming well. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
  3. Sift together dry ingredients and add to creamy mixture.
  4. Shape dough into balls, using a rounded teaspoon for each ball. Roll balls in sugar and place on a greased cookie sheet.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Top each cookie with a candy kiss, pressing down firmly so cookie cracks around edges.
  6. Put back into oven for 2 to 5 minutes longer, until golden brown.

I've made these cookies before and they're great! I added extra peanut butter for more flavor. A sure fire hit for get togethers!

These are delicious and buttery. They turn out well every time. I used to make these once a month for theater meetings in college. I find that the recipe makes more than 14 (smallish) cookies...

Love them! Only change is to add 2T of milk and use butter instead of shortening (or at least half butter half shortening). You can add more or less flour as needed. It's a flexible recipe. Just...

This recipe works really well if you cut the flour to 1 1/3 cups. It makes about 32 cookies, so you will need more kisses.

I didn't read all of the reviews, just Sarajo's and noted she had a crumbly dough. So, I left out a 1/4 cup of the flour and found that worked for me. The dough was a tad dry, but workable and...

Very dry dough..added more peanut butter and 2 TBL. Milk..took a lot longer to cook..last batch turned heat up to 375° and cooked for 10 minutes....they do still taste good..is good basic recip...

Every time I make these the kisses melt. What do I do. They are my favorite cookie. Just can't get the kisses to stay up.
