In the meantime, I decided I would share this cookie with you. As usual, I made these to please the Grumpy man in my life. Which is why they are made with hugs instead of kisses. He is more of a white chocolate person and the white part on the outside of the kiss is good enough to fool him. 😉 The photo is one I used as my header last year when I first started my blog. It sure has come a long way since then! Thank you to all of you you visit and comment and to those who visit and don’t comment! I’ll leave you with the recipe – a great addition to your Christmas cookie platter list!
48 HERSHEY’S KISSES Brand Milk Chocolates
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup REESE’S Creamy Peanut Butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
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.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate into center of each cookie; cookie will crack around edges. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 4 dozen cookies.
