Cookies - Fin.
It occured to me that, after reading the cookie secrets, you might want an actual recipe for making cookies. I was going to tell you to use the recipe on the back of a bag of Hershey's Kisses, but it turns out I have already coded up the recipe for them. And here's one last bonus tip - buy shortening in easy stick form - measuring half a cup out of the large tub is just not worth the effort.
Peanut Blossoms (aka Brown Eyed Susans)
- 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 48 milk chocolate candy kisses
Heat oven to 375° F. In large bowl, whisk together flour, 1/2 cup sugar, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. In separate bowl, mix shortening, peanut butter, milk, vanilla and egg: blend at low speed until stiff dough forms. Shape into 1-inch balls; roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake at 375° F. for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately top each cookie with a candy kiss, pressing down firmly so cookie cracks around edge; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.
