Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1-1/3 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Chocolate Kisses

  1. In a bowl beat peanut butter, shortening, and margarine with an electric mixer on medium to high speed about 30 seconds or until softened. 
  2. Add about half of the flour, sugar, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, baking powder, and baking soda to the peanut butter mixture. Beat until thoroughly combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Then beat or stir in the remaining flour. 
  3. If necessary, cover and chill dough until easy to handle. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. 
  4. Remove cookies. Slightly press a milk chocolate kiss into each hot cookie. Cool on a wire rack.
