Peanut Blossoms

I thought I had this recipe on the blog already, but I guess not! You can make these as written or in a mini muffin pan.

-Mom Pulsipher

½ cup shortening
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
1 egg
2 Tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 ¾ cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt

28 chocolate kisses

Beat together shortening, butter and sugars. Add egg, milk and vanilla and mix well. Stir together flour, soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture. Beat on low speed until stiff dough forms. Shape into 1-inch balls (0.8 oz if you want to be precise). Roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Immediately top each cookie with a kiss pressing firmly until cracks appear around edges. Remove from cookie sheet to cool.

For cookie cups: Follow mixing directions and place sugared balls into DAH mini muffin tray. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes. Immediately top with kiss, pressing firmly until cracks appear around edges. Cool at least 10 minutes before removing from tray.
