Kisses Peanut Butter Blossoms

I love Hershey's Kisses. I have noticed that they are making so many different kinds now. This is my new favorite, Cookies'n'Creme. I thought what a better cookie for them to go with than the peanut butter blossoms.
Kisses Peanut Butter Blossoms
24 Hershey's Kisses Cookies'n'Creme
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
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Remove foil from Kisses.
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.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar set aside in small bowl; place on ungreased cookie sheet.
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 and allow to cool completely. Instead of making 48 cookies I made the cookies bigger and ended up with 24.

This would be right up Grumpy's alley - with the white (cookies & cream) kisses. He is not a huge chocolate fan. Of course, myself, gimme the chocolate! :-p
