It's an excellent cookie for gift-giving, family get-togethers, or simply for enjoying with coffee or hot chocolate.
Remove the wrappers from the Hershey's Kisses, place in a bowl, and set aside.
This way you're ready to place the chocolate directly into the hot-from-the-oven cookies.
If you wait until the cookies are somewhat cooled to place the chocolate in the middle, the cookie could crack into pieces. It's best to place the chocolates while the cookie is warm.
Your Cookie Ingredients
- 48 Hershey's Kisses Milk Chocolates
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/3 cup granulated white sugar
- 1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 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 white sugar
Now Make Your Cookies
Beat shortening and peanut butter in a large bowl. Add 1/3 cup granulated and brown sugar and beat until the mixture appears fluffy.
Add egg, milk, and vanilla and beat until well blended.
Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt and gradually add to the fluffy mixture.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in sugar and place on un-greased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until the cookies are lightly brown on top.
Press the chocolates, one by one, into the center of each cookie. This is how they get that pretty blossom appearance.
Remove the cookies from the cookie sheet to wire racks and allow to cool completely.
Yield: approximately 3 1/2 to 4 dozen Peanut Butter Blossom cookies

During the holidays, Hershey's offers their Caramel Filled Kisses and their Cherry Cordial Kisses.
Try using one of these flavors of Hershey's Kisses in the cookies for a new twist on flavor.
We tried Hershey's Caramel Filled Kisses and they tasted excellent when paired with the peanut butter and chocolate!
