I had a bag of Hersey’s kisses laying around and decided to use them in a recipe so that I wouldn’t be snacking on them all day! It didn’t really work out, though–I ended up eating more cookies with the kisses than I would have eaten kisses normally. Oh well!
Recipe from the back of the Hershey’s kiss bag
Makes 48 cookies
48 Hershey’s Kisses
½ cup shortening
¾ cup peanut butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
2 Tbs milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
Heat oven to 375F. Remove wrappers from chocolates.
Beat shortening and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended. Ad 1/3 cup 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 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate into center of each cookie; cookie will crack around edges. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
