Peanut Butter Blossoms



48 Hershey's Kisses
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Granulated sugar

1. Heat oven to 375°F. Remove wrappers from chocolates.

2. Beat shortening and peanut butter in 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.

3. Shape dough into 1-inch (or 1-1/2-inch) balls. Roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet.

4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes (10 to 12 minutes for 1-1/2-inch balls) or until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate into center of each cookie; cookie will crack around edges. After 1 minute, remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.

Makes about 3-4 dozen cookies, depending on size.

I'm adding this blog to my favorites. I should've added "practice cooking" to my 2009 goals. I'm a horrible cook, no matter how hard I try. I'm sure I could get better if I actually practiced. I'll definitely try some of your recipes and will let you know of my success of failure. ;)

It's all in the practicing! The more you do it, the more it becomes second nature. =)

About This Blog

I find recipes everywhere. Online. In magazines. In cookbooks. On the back of boxes. After a while, it got difficult to remember where I found (or stashed) a particular recipe when I wanted to make it a second time. With the goal of wrangling them all in one coherent location that was easy to find and navigate--along with multiple requests from friends for this recipe or that one--this blog was born.
