Ingredients

  • 48 Hersey's kiss candies
  • 1/2 cup butter-flavored shortening
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar lightly packed
  • 1 egg large
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • extra sugar for rolling cookies in

Instructions

  • Remove wrappers from chocolate kisses; place in the freezer overnight. (I forgot to freeze them and they came out just fine!)
  • Heat oven to 375°F. Beat shortening and peanut butter in the large bowl until well blended. Add 1/3 cup 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 peanut butter mixture.
  • Shape dough into 48 balls (about 1-inch each). Roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 3 to 4 minutes. Press frozen peanut butter filled chocolate piece into the center of each cookie; the cookie will crack around the edges. Remove cookies from sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
