Brenda's Peanut Butter Blossoms

First, let me say that I don't know anyone who doesn't love these!!!!!!!

These are so good and easy. The best thing is that you can bake 3 dozen cookies in the oven at the same time. You can use any peanut butter cookie recipe.

Peanut Blossom Cookies (makes 3 dozen)
Sift together: 1 3/4 cup flour (I don't use a sifter)
1 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt

Cream Together: 1/2 cup shortening (I use butter flavored)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar

Add and Beat Well:

1 egg
2 Tab. milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Blend together. Grease mini-muffin tins (I bought 3 to bake 36 at once)

Spoon dough into tins (don't overfill).

Bake 375 for 7 minutes

*while baking, unwrap 36 miniature Reese's (it takes the whole 7 minutes)

Push Reese's into the baked cookie ASAP. Let cool for a few minutes and remove from tins.

** You may use a Hershey kiss. I baked some extras just on a cookie sheet and they were great!
If you use a kiss and don't use the mini-muffin tins, roll balls of dough into sugar and put on cookie sheet. When you remove from the oven, just press a kiss into the center of the baked cookie ASAP.
