Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375° F. Grease cookie sheets. I typically use 3: 2 cookie sheets for the Hershey’s Kiss cookies and 1 mini muffin pan for the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

2. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening, peanut butter, brown sugar, and 1 cup white sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time and stir in the milk and vanilla.

3. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl; gradually stir into the peanut butter mixture until well blended.

4. Shape tablespoons of dough into balls and roll in remaining white sugar. Place cookies 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets or directly into the mini muffin pan. Bake for 9 minutes.

5. Remove cookies the oven and immediately press a Hershey Kiss or Reese’s Cup into each cookie. I usually put them back in the oven for 2 minutes so the chocolate can melt to the cookie. Allow them to cool completely.

Enjoy!
