Baking with the Kids

The week before Christmas, Sean and I visited his family in Ohio.  While we were there, we made several batches of cookies with his niece and nephews.  We had such a good time that I couldn’t help but post the pictures here with the recipe we used from Hershey.  I hope you’ve all had a Merry Christmas and that your baking adventures have been as fun as mine. 

48 Hershey’s Kisses
½ C. Shortening
¾ C. Peanut butter
1/3 C. Granulated sugar
1/3 C. Packed light brown sugar
1 Egg
2 T. Milk
1 t. Vanilla
1-1/2 C. All-purpose flour
1 t. Baking soda
½ t. salt
Granulated sugar

Heat oven to 375.  Remove wrappers from chocolates.

Beat shortening and peanut butter in a large bowl until well blended.  Add sugars and 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 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.  Immediately press a chocolate into the center of each cookie.  The cookie will crack around the edges.  Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.  Cool completely.
