Peanut Butter Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies

 In honor of our giveaway winner yesterday I thought I'd post these yummy little numbers.  Once again an awesome cookie that I only privilege myself once a year at Christmas.  These are a good ol' Christmas cookie standby.  They are also easy & a good one to make with kiddos.  
I like to have my kids unwrap all the Hershey kisses.  Usually about half of them end up in their mouths.  Here's the DL...
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Hershey Kisses
Granulated sugar
Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Remove wrappers from Hershey Kisses.  
Beat shortening and peanut butter.  Add 1/3 cup granulated and brown sugar and beat until fluffy.  Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well.  Gradually stir in flour , baking soda and salt.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls and roll in sugar.  Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for about 8 minutes.  
Remove from oven & immediately (& I mean IMMEDIATELY) press one Hershey Kiss into the center of each cookie.  Place on cooling rack & let cool completely.
