Hershey's Kisses (I used the meltaways, but the milk chocolate will work fine)
1/2 c. shortening
3/4 c. creamy peanut butter
1/3 c. granulated sugar
1/3 c. packed light brown sugar
2 Tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
extra granulated sugar
Heat oven to 375 F. Remove wrappers from chocolates. Beat shortening and peanut butter in large bowl. Add granulated sugar and brown sugar; beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk, and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt; gradually beat into mixture.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in extra sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a Hershey's Kiss into the center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Makes 3-4 dozen cookies.
