  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 dozen chocolate candy kisses
  • Extra sugar

Sift flour, soda, and salt.

Cream shortening, peanut butter, sugar, egg and vanilla. Add dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly.

Shape by teaspoonfuls into round balls. Roll in sugar. Place on greased baking sheet. Bake in a 375-degree preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Top each with chocolate kiss, pressing down firmly so cookie cracks around edges. Return to oven. Bake 2 to 3 minutes longer. Yields: 3 dozen cookies.
