Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1-3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sugar for dusting
2 dozen Hersheys kisses

Instructions

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Cream shortening, peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg and milk. Add vanilla. Mix. Blend dry ingredients into creamed mixture. Shape into balls the size of walnuts and roll in sugar. Place on cookie sheet. Bake in 375 degree oven for 8 minutes. Remove from oven. Place a Hershey's Kiss on top, pressing down so cookie cracks around edge. Return to oven 2 to 5 minutes until kiss melts. Put colored sugar on top of cookies before you bake them if you prefer.
