 Preheat oven to 375°F.

Combine brown sugar, peanut butter, shortening, milk, and vanilla in large bowl or (stand mixer). Beat at medium speed until well blended. Add egg; beat until just blended.

In a separate bowl, combine (Sift) flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to creamed mixture at low speed. Mix just until blended.

Form/Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet or I used parchment paper. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.

Immediately press a chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie; cookie will crack around the edges.
Remove from the cookie sheet to a wire rack to cool. 


 I stuck the unwrapped Hershey kisses in the refrigerator to get nice and cold so they don't melt so quickly when you press into the cookie. 

***Product Review***

Glutino flour  worked really well for this recipe. These cookies came out yummy !
These won't last long in our home !!!
