Peanut Blossoms

My last Christmas cookie to make. These are the classic peanut butter cookie with a chocolate kiss placed on top. The peanut butter cookie is excellent without the chocolate kiss too!

1 cup peanut butter (I prefer crunchy)
1 cup shortening
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar

Cream together.

Add 2 eggs

3 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. Baking soda
1 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Vanilla
3-4 Tbsp. Milk

Mix well. Roll into balls, smaller than a walnut. Roll balls in granulated sugar. Place on baking sheet. Bake at 375° F. for 10-12 minutes. Immediately top with unwrapped kiss. Press kiss until sides start to crack. Let set for 1-2 minutes. Then remove from pan to cool.
