peanut butter kisses...(revisited)

48 Hershey's Kisses
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
2 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
granulated sugar

Heat oven to 375°F. Remove wrappers from chocolates. Beat shortening and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended. Add 1/3 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar; mix until fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla and mix well. In a separate bowl stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar; place on greased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate into center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.

I made these a few months ago, but I like this recipe from Hershey's Kitchen much better!!

I can vouch for these small little pieces of heaven...they taste even better than they look! (which is hard to believe, I know)
