Keyword: cookies, peanut butter
1/2 cupBrown Sugar
1/2cup White Sugar
1 3/4 cupFlour
24Chocolate Kiss Candies
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
In a large mixer, cream the shortening and peanut butter until mostly smooth. (A few little lumps won't hurt.)
Add both sugars and mix well. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat for 1 minute or until light and fluffy.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, soda, and salt. Slowly add the dry mix to the rest of the cookie dough. Mix until just combined.
Scoop the dough into small balls. I use my small cookie scoop, which is about 1½ Tablespoons. Roll the balls into sugar and place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet or an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375°F for 8-10 minutes. While the cookies are baking, remove the foil from the chocolate kisses. Remove the cookies from the oven and add the kisses, pressing firmly in the middle. The cookies will crack. Bake for 2-5 more minutes. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
