TSB Holiday Cookies: Peanut Butter Meets Chocolate










This recipe has been in my files so long that I can barely read it anymore. Easy enough for beginners, this is one of our all time family favorites.


    48 HERSHEY’S KISSES Brand Milk Chocolates
    1/2 cup shortening
    3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
    1/3 cup granulated sugar
    1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
    1 egg
    2 tablespoons milk
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    Granulated sugar


    1 Heat oven to 375°F. Remove wrappers from chocolates.

    2 Beat shortening and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended. Add 1/3 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar; beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture.

    3 Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet.

    4 Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate into center of each
    cookie; cookie will crack around edges. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
    About 4 dozen cookies.

Editor’s note:  We at TSB thought it would be fun to kick off  December by thinking cookies – lots of cookies for the holidays.
