FOR MIA: cookies to homph and/or glomph

PEANUT BLOSSOMS! this is another crazy grandma special, looks like it was cut from a magazine. ladies' home journal or redbook? WE WILL NEVER KNOW FOR SURE.

48 hershey's kisses (any kind works, I used dark chocolate this xmas but the new peanut butter ones would probably be AWESOME)
1/2 cup shortening (this is important, do not use unsalted butter because it will cause your cookie to spread)
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups ap flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
extra sugar in which you will roll the cookies

preheat! 375!

in large bowl, beat shortening and peanut butter until well blended. add sugar and brown sugar, beat until light and fluffy. add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. mix flour, soda and salt together, gradually add to peanut butter mixture. this is where you make ONE INCH BALLS (hurr) of dough and roll them in the extra sugar. place on ungreased cookie sheet, bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. IMMEDIATELY (though dont freak out, you do have a few seconds to get this done) put a kiss on each cookie, press it down so the dough kind of flattens out into a cookie shape. cool on wire rack, etc.

BEST WHEN SLIGHTLY WARM and the chocolate is still runny, though they last a long time, that is if you have that sort of restraint. im sure no one here does, I DONT anyway.
