Chocolate-Peanut Butter Blossoms

Category: Cookies and Bars
Difficulty Rating: Easy

Everybody has the recipe for these. They are those peanut butter cookies with the chocolate kisses in the middle? Except this recipe is not the one you will find today at the Betty Crocker Recipe Site.
This one is a Pillsbury recipe gotten from an olde magazine ad when I was about 10. It has slightly more shortening than the other one, so it makes cookies that don't split as much around the edges. Great cookies, everyone who likes peanut butter and chocolate likes them. So if you don't have the recipe, here it is, boo-boo!


1 3/4 C flour
1 t soda
1/2 t salt
1/2 C sugar
1/2 C firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 C shortening
1/2 C peanut butter
1 egg
2 T milk
1 t vanilla extract
48 milk chocolate candly kisses


Combine all ingredients except kisses. shape dough into balls--a rounded teaspoonful of each. Roll balls in sugar (I use a paper plate or a piece of wax paper for this). Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Top each cookie with a coandy kiss immediately. Press down firmly so cookie cracks around the edge.
