Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

*You will need approximatley1 bag of Hershey Kisses per batch.

Mix together:
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 tablespoons milk

Add 1 egg

In a separate bowl mix together:
1 3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 baking soda

Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture & mix well. 
Shape into balls & roll in white sugar. 
Arrange on cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 for 7-10 minutes.
Remove from oven & cool on cookie sheet 1 minute.
Gently press a Hershey Kiss into each cookie.
Let sit 1 minute then giggle each kiss just a little.  (This helps smush the melted chocolate into the cookie a little so when the Kisses harden up they don't fall off the cookies as easily.)
Remove from cookie sheet & cool on the counter until Kisses are firm.
Store in air tight container.

Makes about 5 dozen.
