This recipe was 'inherited' from my Grandmother, Pearl Webb of Miami, OK. My Grandmother was an awesome cook and her desserts (pies, cakes, cookies to name just a few) were legendary - inside and outside the family. She loved to bake!
Ingredient List (My Grandmother always said to gather all the ingredients first, so here we go!)
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Tbl milk
1 tsp vanilla
Hershey's chocolate kisses (My Grandma used regular chocolate kisses. I prefer with almonds - yummy!)
Linda's Tips: I always freeze the candy kisses and unwrap them while the cookies are baking. The kisses, when baked into the cookie, are just the right softness and melt in your mouth. I have used both Peter Pan and Smucker's Natural Creamy Peanut Butter - both provide a great peanut butter flavor to the cookies.
