Stay at our Ohio Amish Country lodging establishment and receive homemade cookies every afternoon. Around the holidays we pull our Mom and Grandma's cookie recipes to bake for our guests. When I was a little my grandmother would make us Peanut Butter Kiss cookies. Below is the recipe:
PEANUT BUTTER KISS COOKIES
2/3 c. creamy peanut butter
1/3 c. Crisco butter
1 c. packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 t. vanilla extract
1 1/2 c. flour
1/4 t. salt
Sugar for coating cookies
40 Hershey Kiss chocolates, unwrapped
Preheat the over to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl beat the peanut butter, crisco, brown sugar until combined.
Add the eggs one at a time, then add vanilla...beat well.
On low speed blend in the flour & salt.
Shape the dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in granulated white sugar to coat lightly.
Place on an ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 8 minutes at 350 then add the Hershey Kiss and bake 3-4 more minutes until lightly browned.
