Why I Love This Recipe

This is a family favorite, usually made at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

It's better to use the silver Hershey kisses from the U.S. They hold up better during baking.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup shortening (Crisco)
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
1/2 cup golden brown sugar
Hershey kisses


Mix shortening, peanut butter, egg, and wet ingredients together in a large bowl.

Then add flour and dry ingredients. Mix together well using a spoon at first and then your hands.

Roll into balls, ~ 1" diameter or smaller.

Bake at 190C/375F for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are nearly cooked through.

Remove from oven and press a Hershey kiss into the center of each cookie.

Return to the oven and bake for an additional 2 minutes.
