Peanut Blossoms

1 3/4 cup sifted flour
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup (firmly packed) brown sugar
1 egg
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
Candy kisses

Sift flour, soda, and salt. Cream shortening, peanut butter, and sugar. Add egg, milk, and vanilla. Beat well. Blend dry ingredients gradually-mix thoroughly.

Shape by rounded teaspoonfuls into balls. Roll in sugar and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes.

Remove from oven and place a candy kiss on top of each cookie, pressing down so that the cookie cracks around edges.

Makes 3 dozen.
