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
2 T. Milk
1 t. Vanilla
1-1/2 C. All-purpose flour
1 t. Baking soda
½ t. salt
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.
