Recipe for Peanut Blossoms from "Award Winning Recipes" Cookbook
(makes about 4 dozen cookies)

1 3/4 cups All Purpose or Unbleached Flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
Granulated sugar
48 Hershey Kisses, unwrapped

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Farhenheit.  Combine the flour, the 1/2
cup granulated sugar, the brown sugar, baking soda, salt, shortening,
peanut butter, milk, vanilla, and egg in a large bowl at a low speed
until a stiff dough forms.  Shape into 1-inch balls; roll each ball
in granulated sugar.  Place the balls 2 inches apart on ungreased
cookie sheets.  Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove the cookie sheets from the oven and immediately top each cookie
with a chocolate kiss, pressing down firmly so the cookie cracks
around the edge.  Remove the cookies to wire racks to cool.
