Peanut Butter Kisses


Here's another version of Joan's Peanut Butter Cookies. We love to make these during the Christmas holidays--or anytime really!

1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup peanut butter, chunky
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 package Hershey's Chocolate Kisses

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large mixing bowl, cream together shortening and sugars until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, and then peanut butter; mix well. In small bowl, mix together flour, soda, baking powder, salt and cream of tartar. Add dry ingredients to butter mixture. Mix well. 

Roll into walnut sized balls and dip in sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Press one Hershey's Kiss in the center of each cookie. Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden around edges. Makes 4 dozen.
