    1      bag (13 oz)   Hershey’s Kisses
      1/2  cup           shortening
      3/4  cup           Creamy or Crunchy Peanut Butter
      1/3  cup           granulated sugar
      1/3  cup           packed light brown sugar
    1                    egg
    2      tablespoons   milk
    1      teaspoon      vanilla extract
    1 1/2  cups          all-purpose flour

      1/2  teaspoon      salt
                         Granulated sugar
 
 Heat oven to 375F. Remove wrappers from chocolate pieces. In large mixer
 bowl, beat shortening and peanut butter until well blended. Add sugars; beat
 until light and fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together
 flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to peanut butter mixture. Shape
 dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie
 sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately place
 chocolate piece on top of each cookie, pressing down so cookie cracks around
 edges. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
 
 YIELD: about 4 dozen cookies
