One of my Favorite Holiday Cookies

(photo courtesy hersheys.com)

Peanut Blossom Cookies

1-3/4 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 T. milk
1 tsp. soda
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1 egg
48 chocolate kisses

Combine all ingredients together except candy kisses in large mixing bowl. Mix on lowest speed of mixer until dough forms. Shape dough into balls using a rounded teaspoonful for each. Roll balls in sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Top each cookie immediately with a candy kiss. Press down firmly so cookie cracks around edge.

Makes about 48 cookies.

I just made these bad boys Sunday afternoon. Along with the chocolate ones with the pecans, and chocolate chip cookies with peppermint extract and peppermint M&M's instead of choco chips. The best part about Christmas is the cookies!
