Peanut Blossoms

These are peanut blossoms for my brother-in-law’s  birthday.  The recipe is from Hersheys.  This recipe makes a ton of cookies!  I used shortening which makes for very puffy cookies that don’t spread at all.  If you want to use softened butter, feel free.  Although the cookies will probably spread out more.

1 cup of shortening.    1 cup brown sugar.  1 1/2 cups peanut butter.   1 cup sugar.        2 eggs.  1 tsp vanilla.  3 1/2 cups flour.        2 tsp baking soda.  1/4 tsp salt.                   2 tbs milk

Cream shortening and peanut butter.  Add sugar and brown sugar.  Blend well.  Add eggs and vanills.  Stir in dry ingredients.  Roll 3 tbs dough into balls.  Chill.  Bake at 350 degrees for 7 to 9 minutes.  Immediately press hershey kiss in top.  Let cool for a few minutes on cookie sheet.  Store in covered c0ntainwe.
