  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar packed
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 and 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • extra sugar for rolling
  • 1 bag of milk chocolate kisses


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • In a large bowl combine shortening, peanut butter,and all three sugars (regular, light brown and dark brown) and cream together using a hand mixer. Add in the egg, milk, and vanilla and continue mixing until completely combined. Slowly add flour, baking soda and salt into the wet ingredients.
  • On a small plate measure out a small amount of regular sugar (about a 1/4 of a cup) to use for rolling the cookie dough balls in. Using a tablespoon, scoop out cookie dough and roll it in between your palms to make a smooth round shape. Roll each cookie dough ball around in the sugar until completely covered.
  • Place cookie dough balls onto a light greased baking sheet and bake for 8 to 9 minutes. Once you pull them out of the oven quickly place a milk chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie. The sides with puff up and crack slight. Quickly and gently remove cookies from the baking sheet onto a cooling rack. Allow 5 minutes for cooling before serving.
