1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg

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.
